  • We visited on a Thursday. It takes a couple of hours to go through the place. It's well worth the $5 charged for adults! Follow the guide sheet they give you. Who knew that Bob Hope is buried there, t...  more »

  • The mission trail is a great path to follow when trekking through California. The beauty here in San Fernando lives in this bit of history. Many houses, and ranches were designed around the Spanish mission styles, leading to the beauty of the architecture in the state. Come visit for the history, and stay around for the delicious food around it.
  • I love visiting our missions in California and a lot of history here in our state and we must preserve them along with our beautiful forest
  • Fun historical visit. $5 to get in, children are cheaper. See all the artifacts that shaped San Fernando. The grounds are peaceful. Be sure to see the Bob Hope gardens/tomb by the chapel.
  • More to see than I thought. Museum portions historic and interesting. Better than other Missions.
  • 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.
