San Fernando Mission

I have always loved the old Spanish missions in California. If there is one close by on our wanderings, I want to see it. The Mission San Fernando Rey de Espana is not too far from where my family lived in Chatsworth, but I don't remember ever going there. I know that when the 1972 earthquake hit, this mission was in danger from a dam that was was in danger of failing. This mission is still in use and houses the main offices for the Catholic church in the area. The grounds are beautiful, with the fattest squirrels I've ever seen!


  1. I think I knew in the back of my mind there was a mission nearby, but I wonder why we never visited there.

  2. Speaking of missions and Catholics have you read ken fillets 'pillars of the earth.'? I highly recommend it. And that mission looks beautiful.

  3. Follet. Sorry I'm using my phone.
