  • A large old mission that you can wander the grounds freely on. Unique old buildings and architecture. Terrific views of surrounding areas. The visiting center has an Indian Sacred Encounters Culture exhibit that has tons of history of the area from all perspectives. Easily spend a few hours just touring the exhibit.
  • Enjoyable, especially for history buffs. Their 17 minute video it's worth watching (free); it's a good balance historically (not over sided). It could be updated to HD. The grounds were mostly well kept. The staff was nice. The AC in the customer center in nice. Recommended.
