The twenty-one missions of California - from San Diego to San Francisco Solano - are historic treasures and sites of pilgrimage for visitors from the world over. Intrinsically beautiful structures typically built of adobe brick and wood, adorned with towers, domes, whitewashed stucco, often surrounded by lush gardens, the missions are at the very heart of California.
Established by Spanish padres, built by Native Californians, and preserved and restored by historians and architects, California’s missions are unique monuments to the region’s indigenous and European histories. This colorful, informative exploration dedicated solely to Central California's fabled Mission San Miguel Archangel couples Ruben G. Mendoza's incisive text with Melba Levick's lush photography.
