King of the Missions
Mission San Luis Rey in the beautiful San Luis Rey Valley of Oceanside draws thousands of visitors each year to enjoy its Majesty. By far this mission was the largest of all built by the Spanish Franciscan Friars. Returned to the church by President Lincoln after it had been seculaized by the Mexican govenment in the 1800's.
It has a museum to explore and a gift shop for those looking for souviniers and religous gifts.
