Mission Santa Inez, Solvang CA (Est. 1804)

Traveling to Southern California on Highway 101 towards Santa Barbara takes you to a cut off to a city called Solvang.  A Danish hamlet located a few miles off 101 before Santa Barbara, and what a treat do you have in store!

Don't plan on spending a few hours, consider a few days!

Mission Santa Ines

At the end of town is the old Mission Santa Ines that was founded on 1804.

Mission Santa Ines

It has endured through a long and varied history to still serve the community today.

Santa Ines

The Mission is open to the public, and has a museum and gift shop.

Santa Ines

You even have the ability to walk through the old graveyards.

If you plan on going, don't forget to bring your camera and a good pair of shoes to look at everything!
