Mission San Buenaventura

211 East Main Street
Ventura, CA 93001-2691

Description

Mission San Buenaventura is a parish rich in Catholic heritage. Founded in 1782, Mission San Buenaventura, was the ninth of California's 21 missions and the last to be established by Father Junipero Serra. Destroyed by fire in the 1790s, the church was rebuilt over a period of a dozen years and rededicated in 1809. 

Begin your self-guided tour by browsing through the small museum and admiring the quiet courtyard with its stately star pines. Of special interest are the statues of saints situated throughout the mission and the 250-year-old paintings of the Stations of the Cross, which have been in the chapel since its rededication.
