Mission San Miguel Arcángel

ADD TO MY TRIP

People say that this is the first place where wine was made in California. The mission was built in 1797, only to burn down about ten years later. The building you can visit now was completed by 1821 and less than fifteen years later it became a secular space (following Mexican independence). It had been closed down for many years following the San Simeon 2003 earthquake but is now open again to the public. Don't miss the original murals.
