    We were there before the mission opened so we just go pictures from the outside. The bell tower is quite pretty.  more »

    I lived in the village of San Miguel as a child and love to come back to the mission when I'm in the area. The mission has been preserved and is probably not different than when it was built in 1797. ...  more »

    There may be bigger fancier missions in the string Father Sierra left for us, however, this is my favorite! I can't really say if it's the: simplicity, aesthetics, small community is in, the amazing staff, the friars or, just the way it smells; probably a combination of these factors and more. There isn't much in town but, this is the best stop on the 101 for a break from the hustle and bustle of the modern world. Take your time. Wander around. Watch the fish in the fountain. Sit on a bench in the main courtyard or, a pew in the sanctuary and just breath deep the love of God and your fellow man that was and is the inspiration for this awe inspiring place.

    I was on an honor guard from Camp Roberts in 1961 for someone who was a military member of the mission! I used to go to the Episcopal Church in Paso Robles! Being on the honor guard was a great experience! The mission was not as active at the time. but we were given a tour and I went back for a visit in 1964!

    After zooming by San Miguel for so many years, we finally decided to stop and check it out. Amazingly intact mission settlement with a really authentic and undeveloped feel. It really feels like stepping back in time 200 years!

    A fantastic mission, a wonderful place to listen to classical concerts if you should get the chance. The quality of the space is amazing, and it has been left relatively original, from the standpoint of California Missions.

    Looking good for 220 years old! Nice gift shop and clean bathrooms.
