Santa Barbara and the Central Coast Sights

La Purísima Mission State Historic Park

Updated 04/15/2014

Fodor's Review

The state's most fully restored mission, founded in 1787, stands in a stark and still remote location that powerfully evokes the lives and isolation of California's Spanish settlers. Docents lead tours every afternoon, and vivid displays illustrate the secular and religious activities that formed mission life. Special events include crafts demonstrations by costumed docents.
