Founded by Father Estevan Tapis, in 1804, this is the 19th of 21 California missions, established by Franciscan priests. The Padres ministered to the Spanish and Mexican population of the area and to the native Chumash. Today the Capuchin Franciscan order serves the parish. There is a small entrance fee to tour the church, museum, gardens, and cemetery. Explore the rich collection of paintings, vestments, manuscripts, statuary and artifacts. The Mission is named after Saint Agnes, the patron saint of purity and chastity, and a statue of her resides above the main altar in the church. A gift shop is also located in the mission building offering books, medals and souvenirs.
