Known as the “King of the Missions,” Mission San Luis Rey de Francia, is the largest of the California Missions.  The title “King of the Missions” was bestowed upon this California state treasure because of its expansiveness and architectural beauty.  With such peaceful and inspirational surroundings, it is easy to visualize the everyday life of the Franciscan Friars and Native Americans who inhabited the Mission more than two centuries ago.

Students of all ages are welcome, but the student program is primarily geared toward the 4th grade level.
