  • Decided this would be a good year to visit all of the Spanish missions in California; I've lived here all my life but have only been to 5 or 6 of the 21 missions. Picked San Buenaventura since it was ...  more »
  • The mission is small but appealing. A nice, quick stop. Not a whole lot to see but worthwhile for stretching the legs and learning a little history. $4 donation per adult. 
  • I am touring Missions on my vacation. This Mission is small compared to others. It is nice though. This one may not be as amazing as San Juan Capistrano or Santa Barbara but it has character and wonde...  more »

  • Ok, I probably shouldn't have gone there in the first place. As a progressive person rooting for diversity, equality and freedom, I regret paying $4 going there only to know that my money will probably go into printing another copy of their anti-abortion brochure sitting on the shelves in the church. The staff members are super friendly, which I appreciate. And the architecture is beautiful, which I enjoyed. Nonetheless, the one-sided narration of the history was disturbing, to say the least. There were no mention of the forced labor and the cultural loss of the Chumash people. Somehow they do sell a couple of illustrated children's book about Chumash culture, maybe the guilt finally kicked in.
  • This is a great mission. Very pretty, and well preserved. It fits into the town setting very well.
  • Beautiful Mission located in the town area. Good free parking just west of the Mission in a parking lot on the south side of the street. Well worth a visit.
  • Wow such a unique, warm and welcoming parish. We were truly bleesed to celebrate our Easter with you, our family reflected on the service through out the day and how special the message and experience was for each of us.
  • California Mission History told here is false their can be no beauty behind lies of the Catholic church. 90 percent of Indigenous peoples died enslaved, beaten and raped. How is it beautiful when the land itself was stolen and used for the Churches gain. This is an intitution glorifying criminals .
