    What to Expect
    Mission San Luis Rey is among the largest of California's 21 Spanish missions, and it shows the significance of Spanish influence in the state's history.

    Browse the museum at your own pace and see informative displays of Native American, Mexican, and Spanish artifacts. The mission is known for its sunken gardens, and archaeological and architectural features such as a wooden dome and cupola. It was once referred to as 'king of the missions.'

    In the present day, the mission is both a retreat center, a home for Franciscan friars and has an active church with daily Mass at noon.

    In the very beginning there were rattles that my daughter (6 months) could play with. The history was interesting and artifacts they have are mesmerizing. There’s a gift shop at the end and workers were kind.

    Great place to visit. I came with my family we all enjoyed the views and history. You cant see the whole mission due to the fact that they have seminars and school going on at all times.

    Just beautiful. Very well kept and restored. There is a lot of information through building. The grounds are amazing. Small but very nice and affordable gift shop. If you go to Oceanside or San Diego take time to see the mission! You won’t be disappointed.
