Did you know that San Buenaventura was named after Saint Bonaventure? It’s a title given to the 9th California Spanish mission established here in 1782, and remains one of the highlight attractions in Ventura.

Feel the Spanish charm of the mission while admiring its architecture, before stepping inside for a self-guided tour. When this active church is not in session, walk around the inside to admire the religious art depicting Bible stories.

Exhibitions inside the mission museum reveal stories about the site through its artifact collection, and you can have a piece of history to take home with items in the gift shop.

We think a visit here is one of the best things to do in Ventura!
