Over one million visitors come each year to experience the northern European culture, cuisine, and boutique shopping.

  • Visit the historic Old Mission Santa Inés. A U.S. National Historic Landmark, the Old Mission Santa Inés was first created all the way back in 1804. Overcoming social upheaval, natural disasters, and decay, it has remained an active church for more than two centuries. As such, it is one of the most enduring icons in Solvang today.
