Viator made it very simple to purchase a ticket in advance. The Mission is piece of artestry restored from the splendor of the 1700's. So much history but also sadness in the evolution of abandonment and disrepair after the Spanish American War. This is a must see if you are visiting the area. It is definitely a place of reflection.
