With a chain of 21 missions all throughout California, it is safe to say a great deal of California's history began with the Spanish Missions. Founded in 1776 by Father Junipero Serra, this Mission is home to the oldest church in California, the Serra Chapel. There is also a bronze statue in memory of Serra, since he was recognized as The Father of California Missions.
