Spanish Mission Trail
Missions y Presidios de California
There are “officially” 21 Missions that make up California’s Historic Mission Trail in what was once known as Alto California. And, five Presidios were built to protect these Missions. [Google Map]
In 2010, we made it our quest to try and find all these historical missions. Our journeys started in California with the SoCal Mission Quest (SMQ), where the goal was to visit the Spanish Missions between San Diego and Santa Barbara. After this, we headed to San Francisco to continue Mission explorations in the North (dubbed the NorCal Mission Quest). Listed below are our journeys.
The mission posts have been turned off because… [drum role] they’re being turned into a book! Check back periodically for details.
Please reach out to me if you’d be interested in being an early reader of the book (before it goes public)!
