Mission San Fernando is basically a Spanish mission in Los Angeles. It is located in Mission Hills and was founded in the year 1797 on September 8th. There are about twenty-one Spanish missions established in this region of California. This was the seventeenth of those. Later, Indians joined and took a different name and the mission became really huge with time. In the early 19th century, the church went the secular way and adopted a chapel. Today, it is a great place to learn the mentality of a completely different set of like-minded individuals.
Established in the 17th century, the Mission San Fernando Rey De Espana derives its name from the King of Spain, St. Ferdinand. This is an active church open daily except on the days of Thanksgiving and Christmas. Today the mission lies in its despaired forms after several excavations following the discovery of gold in the grounds adjoining it. It is a beautifully quiet place where you can enjoy some moments of tranquility. The stunning Spanish fort architecture is indeed very sweeping too.

Mission San Fernando Rey De Espana Reviews & Ratings
Lots of great history to see. Church still holds services. Can purchase a California Missions "passport" book here and get your stamp. If you are looking for famous people's burial sites, Bob Hope and his family are buried here.
A beautifully restored, historical California mission, with a clean, fresh look due to the almost complete disintegration of the place in the past. The expansive park-like areas are restful. A museum presents history and local artifacts, including quite a few Bob Hope objects. The church on site is active and welcoming.
What a fantastic piece of California State History! This Mission has been well-preserved despite surviving a major earthquake. Only negative notes, some of the exhibits are a little phoned-in (tangentially related) and the staff are virtually non-existent (probably due to lack of visitors). For only $5 admission, you do get your money's worth.
The Mission is beautiful and rich in history. My primary church is Incarnation in Glendale though the mission is spectacular. The reason on attending mass at the mission was due to a funeral. I'm very pleased to see no one interrupted during the funeral mass.
Well I didn't visit the church but I did walk around the park I think it was called brand park or San fernando mission park. they had a well manicured rose garden and a couple of fountains. The scenery was beautiful.
