Beautiful Historical setting
Mar 2019 • Couples
Beautiful, serene, historical site. As the King of Missions, the footprint is huge compared to other missions. This ACTIVE Mission has so many things going for it. Plus it is an active parish and has services on the Parish side as well as services and special events in the Historic Church. And so much history with the Franciscans, Luiseno Indians, and Native Oceansiders. I have also done the quiet day retreat, very nice.

Beauty, history and information all wrapped up in a sense of peace
Apr 2019 • Friends
Mission San Luis Rey has a pervasive sense of peace and spirituality in a beautiful, historic setting. The tour offers an insight to the history and truth of how and why the Mission was built and why it still flourishes today. The tour guide was passionate, knowledgable and humorous whilst retaining a sense of awe at the majesty of the surroundings. Am happy to recommend it.

The mission was founded on June 12, 1798. The current church, built in 1815, it the third church on this location.
