We visited on a Thursday. It takes a couple of hours to go through the place. It's well worth the $5 charged for adults! Follow the guide sheet they give you. Who knew that Bob Hope is buried there, too? The Archdiocese deserves lots of...More

My nephew got married there at the Mission Church, Very nice setting on a beautiful day. Very interesting history about this fort/mission. One must visit the Bob Hope Memorial Gardens there where Bob and his wife are buried.

I was born in San Fernando in 1945 and my entire family and friends are buried at the cemetery. I have never been on a tour, but this year my plans are to go visit the church.. Cecelia Velasquez Primero
