Volunteers are keeping it in lovely condition. Worth getting off 101 to visit. The county road between Gonzales and Soledad is very pretty with farms and wineries.

This is in fact a church, a museum, a gathering place for the community, and an active archaeological site! Take your time and wander around and read everything... Also very cool miniatures of all of the California missions!

This is a very pretty mission and very peaceful. The mission is surrounded by different vegetable fields and the Pinnacle Mountain Range. A lovely mission worth visting.

While the original mission church was destroyed by floods and neglect, there is a beautiful small church that was built in the 1950's in typical mission style. I thought the museum was well done -it continues through several rooms based on an historical timeline. There...More
