Mission La Purisima State Historic Park
Today, history lives at La Purisima. The most extensively restored mission in the state, La Purisima hosts over 200,000 visitors each year for recreation and a chance to explore California’s heritage.
We are open nearly every day for self-guided tours, and frequently the park provides a re-creation of life here during the 1820’s, when the residents engaged in weaving, pottery making, candle making, blacksmithing, livestock production, and leatherwork.
In addition to the restored original buildings, the nearly 2,000 acre park is home to 25 miles of hiking trails, a modern Visitor Center and Exhibit Hall, and livestock.
