“California History”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2012

Opportunities to take guided tours as well as self tours of the entire facility. Visit the Gift Store for a wide selection of memorabilia. Excellent area to visit with younger children that will expose them to the history of California. Be prepared to answer the many questions your 4th grader may have:)

“Very fascinating and naturally beautiful!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2012

The Old Mission has a lovely tour and gift shop. The scenery around the Mission is gorgeous. Framed by the Mission arches, it is magnificent art work done by the Master Himself!

Didn't get a chance to go on the self guided tour, but walked around the back, and the gardens and the view are amazing

“Nice place to visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2012

Every Padre Serra mission is different. Santa Ines included. Panoramic vista across the Chumash reservation, a few docents, This is a regular Catholic chuch with parishioners & regular Sunday Services. On festival days its a real fiesta - colorful decorations, music, food, not to be missed. Right on Hwy 246 east of Solvang.

The mission grounds have good views of the countryside and the historical information is well presented. A good bell tower.
