Mission Santa Ines
Picture taken 1:30pm 3 Apr 2002 (overcast)

Mission Santa Inés was founded 17 September 1804 (19th in order) by Padre Estévan Tápis. The mission is named for Saint Agnes. The Indian name was Alajulapu. This is the last mission founded in Southern California. Continuous restoration and a beautiful location in the Santa Ynez valley (don't confuse Santa Ynez with Santa Inés!) make this a must-see visit. The church is active. (Note: Mission Santa Inés celebrates its bicentennial in 2004. See our bicentennial page for more information.)
