  • For the sake of clarity, I am reviewing this only as an historical site and place to visit, not from the point of view of parishioner. We have been to most of the California missions and this is definitely one of the most impressive and interesting due to its size and importance and the fact that there is still such an extensive complex remaining. I was actually unaware of just how large and important this mission was until visiting it. In addition to the church, it has several buildings in various mixture of restored and original, with a large colonnaded wing facing the road that has many rooms. Among these is the "Governor's Room," where officials and dignitaries would stay. It has many artifacts and pleasant, peaceful gardens. Two additional sites are unusual for the missions. One is the "Madonna Room," housing a large collection of many different St. Mary items which some people may find awesome and others unsettling but which is certainly interesting to see. The other is the grave of Bob Hope and his wife Dolores, something of which I was completely unaware. Obviously for some this will be irrelevant but it is definitely a site to visit for those who are interested in movie stars and the like.They have tours and a large gift shop. They have a garden section dedicated to Bob Hope but it does not say why.
  • We were there for a wedding 8 year's ago We were soo, in love with the mission That now, my son is planning on getting married. ..we chose sanfernando mission For he's wedding. the gardens, the architecture, the history , the arch s of the building and fountains are Great for pictures. ..
  • One of 21 missions in California, with one of the highest admission fees in the state. Nicely manicured and owned by the Catholic Church, admission to San Fernando Mission is $5 adults, $3 children. The gift shop admission is free. Scattered along California State's El Camino Real ("The Royal Road") - the church's Missions charge more for admission the further South you go. Mission San Juan Capistrano charges $9 for adults. (State-owned missions offer free admission to buildings and church grounds.)
  • Well maintained and historically interesting museum. The garden across the mission is also very nice.
  • Beautifully kept and still in service -difficult to enter the cathedral but still worth a visit. This has one of the most complete museums and sets of artifacts to view.
