About The Old Mission San Buenaventura in Ventura, California

The Ventura Mission, one in a chain of 21 California missions, is perched on a hill above the Pacific Ocean. You can stand on the mission stairs and view a plaza with a water fountain surrounded by beautiful brickwork next to an historic building with a restaurant and some outdoor tables with umbrellas. Further In the distance you can see the blue ocean waters of Ventura’s beaches. Mission San Buenaventura (which means “good fortune”), is utilized as a church, with an active parish. Ventura County is one of Southern California’s great agricultural regions featuring more microclimates than nearly any other place. Here the soil is rich and farm laborers live nearby, finding this historic mission and gathering place for weekend mass where there’s standing room only.
