Description

Old Mission Santa Inés, the nineteenth of the twenty-one California Missions established by Franciscan priests from 1769 to 1823. Having experienced many changes - sometimes tumultuous ones - since its founding, Old Mission Santa Inés remains rich in tradition, legend, and history.

The Mission, which commands a superb view of the Santa Ynez River Valley and the Santa Ynez and San Rafael mountain ranges, continues its central role in the spiritual and social life of the Santa Ynez Valley as an active parish church of approximately 1,000 families, and is administered by the Capuchin Franciscan order. They hold regular religious services as well as special services for baptisms, confirmations and weddings. The Santa Inés Mission Museum houses a collection of vestments, artwork, documents, and artifacts that were used in and around the Mission throughout its history. Visitors are always welcome.
