Abandoned in the mid-1800s, the CCC worked with the state to fully rebuild this mission in the 1930s. It's a wonderful example of what a mission would have looked like in 1820 or so and how it operated, including crafts like leather-making, weaving, etc. Walk on the original Camino Real as part of your visit. Meet a burro. Very educational.
The California Mission is definetely one of the most interesting and beautiful of all. The rural setting is one of the main attractions verses the missions that are located principally in cities and towns. Also a very good restoration with very good interpretrative rooms of how the residents lived in the days of the mission. It was a very enjoyable... 更多
I've been to a lot of California's missions and this one is among my favorites. The grounds are pretty and expansive; most missions are limited within an urban locale, but this one has a more rural area to spread itself out, and you really get to appreciate the size that a mission would have had. The visitor center was laid... 更多
I recently went to La Purisima mission with family and we all loved it. We were in a group that included 2 young children and they absolutely loved it as well because they had plenty of space to run and play. This mission has very big gardens that you can walk through and it was quite lovely. They also had... 更多
We were camping and decided to visit this park which included La Purisma mission. The visitor center had great exhibits regarding the history and involvement of the CC during the Depression. We toured the facility and the rooms were decorated with items that were used during the time the mission was active. There were no schools in attendance so we... 更多
I've been to La Purisima many times. I usually come here to hike with my girlfriend and dog, but I occasionally come just to wander the grounds and say hi to the animals or peer into the rooms. I like how they have set up many of the buildings to look like they would have when it was a working... 更多
This is a state park so basically the hours are sunrise to sunset. Every now and then there are special night time events with docents as your host. The Mission is huge and there are many trails that go for miles behind and above the Mission in unspoiled topography. The many buildings are well maintained, the church interior is extremely... 更多
it'S NOT WELL PUT TOGEATHER. A DIRT ROAD IN THE PLACE. dirty , nothing was saying come in . paid to get in and was not worth it.
Everyone in Lompoc knows where you went when you say "I'm walking at the mission." The two trails most used are the "upper loop" and the "lower loop". The lower loop is fairly flat and most popular. The upper loop is more of a challenge and not as well traveled. Both are approximately 3 miles. The mission itself is is... 更多
