Peaceful and well maintained mission. It's smaller and less informative than mission San Jose but definitely worth a drop in, if you're in Solvang. The staff gave us helpful instructions and a map for the self-guided tour. The gardens are pretty and a good place...More

A beautiful piece of California history! This place is well preserved and a great place to tour. The view from the parking lot is also amazing as it looks out over the valley below.

We were walking around Solvang and decided to stop by the Mission to look around. We didn't take the tour, but just walking around the grounds immersed you in the history of the place.

Great break from wine tasting and shopping. Self-guided tour but the signs make it easy to navigate. Be prepared to spend at least an hour here.

i'm not sure. In the areas we went it was ground floor or pathways and the doors were wide enough. My suggestion would be to call and check to know for sure though.
