  • It is building more city's oldest, dates from 1791 and the truly extraordinary is that it preserves intact without being affected by fire or earthquake. The chapel of 35m by 6.50 m has its walls of adobe of 1.20 m thick, tied with leather original sequoias trunks supported the roof, the altar was brought from Mexico and the side altars also, its columns appear to be marble but are made of wood the Golden altars sheet looks just like when it was initially. In the sanctuary there is an interesting diorama that shows how the mission was originally. After it moves on to the basilica which was affected by the 1906 earthquake and was rebuilt in 1918. It has beautiful stained glass windows depicting Saint Francis of Assisi and the California missions. A Museum and an ancient cemetery completes the visit.

Where to stay in San Francisco

From inexpensive hostels in quiet residential areas to high-end hotels near the city center, San Francisco has accommodations for every budget. Key consideration is what kind of neighborhood you want to stay in. You'll find luxury hotels in Union Square, which has prime shopping, is near theaters, and is on the cable car line. Many hotels are in the northeastern portion of the city, near the tourist-driven neighborhoods of Chinatown and Fisherman's Wharf, both easily explored on foot. To get away from the tourist crowds, consider the smaller inns and family-run bed and breakfasts in some of the city's more charming neighborhoods, such as Noe Valley or Pacific Heights. There are also boutique hotels scattered around town. Avoid staying in the Tenderloin. If you plan to have a car with you, ask about parking availability and fees. Parking is often difficult and expensive.
