Landscaping is done well. Please tour the Convent 1st floor (and wine cellar). See main Church (beautiful) and keep walking toward back of property to see Bob Hope memorial garden. Allow 1 hour overall, or more. Amazing history to this mission stop.

The Mission San Fernando is one of the unique spots to visit and learn about the history of the city, its people and its religion. Nice outdoor areas to enjoy the learning and the sunshine.

San Fernando has the largest and creepiest collection of relics, statues, weapons, paintings, flags, clothing and tools that fill several rooms. These rooms encircle the mission's charming garden, which contains a wonderful old fountain, and is of course adjacent to the LA Diocese headquarters and...More
