“A world heritage site”

Known as the "Queen of the Missions", this is the largest of the missions and was almost fully restored to its original design in the 1930s by the WPA (Works Projects Administration). Spanish missions were not churches, but communities, with the church the focus. Mission San José shows the visitor how all the missions might have looked over 250 years ago.

This is awesome history. Mission to recruit, train, educate, and hopefully share the gospel with Indians. Its a cool place to take kids to get a visual of how things were during those times. The grounds are well maintained. There isnt much to do other than walk the grounds, see the church, and observe the mill.
