San Antonio, California Mission of 1771

In the warm air of northern California, Spanish friar Junipero Serra founded his third mission of San Antonio de Padua on July 14, 1771. The mission was developed as a working farm with gristmill and tannery.  After extensive refurbishments due to damage from an earthquake, it is now open as a church, retreat center, and museum.
