Went many times with the children on school trips. Very interesting site with informative staff. It is a small site and doesn't take take long to see everything.

The Father Pandosy Mission is worth making a trip to go see. Only 10 minutes from downtown and yet 100 years back in time. You can walk the entire property in under 45 minutes. Definitely best to go from mid-spring to early fall.

It is really amazing to think that nearly 200 years ago Father Pandosy ventured into this vast unknown land, facing dangers at every turn, for the sole purpose of spreading Christianity. You can literally feel the difficulties faced by this priest and his fellows in...More
