We didn’t stay long on this visit, really just stopped by while rushing home, but I have visited many times before. Prior to an earthquake about 12 years ago, the church with its wall art was the only unrestored example in California Missions. Then, we...More

One of the largest and most authentic missions we have visited. Beautiful church, cemetery and landscape. Clearly still in use as a local church. Be sure to go to the historic Adobe across the street! Very cool artifacts at both historic landmarks!

We really enjoy this non-commercialized Mission. Quiet grounds good for strolling. The town is incredibly small with few other sites.

I have visited most all of the California missions, including into Baja California (that was the same area of Mexico as Alto California in the late 1700's). Mission San Miguel Arcangel is exceptional for the original configuration, because it has always been in use, and...More

Beautiful active mission. So authentic. Love the old details - the entrance, chapel, landscape, and bell tower. This mission is a MUST SEE! Easy to get to off North 101.
