9780762727933: A FalconGuideŽ to California's Missions and Presidios: A Guide To Exploring California's Spanish And Mexican Legacy (Exploring Series)

As Spanish authorities colonized Alta California, they established twenty-one Franciscan missions and four forts, or presidios, to bring the native inhabitants of the region under control and to provide for security and defense. Today, the missions and presidios are among California's most popular historic landmarks, and enduring reminders of California's Spanish and Mexican past. A FalconGuide to California's Missions and Presidios is a fun and fascinating tour of the missions and presidios for vacactioners and history buffs alike. This guide includes beautifully descriptive text, a brief history of each site, key festivals, plus information on nearby attractions.

From the Back Cover:

From San Diego to San Francisco, California's rich Spanish and Mexican heritage is showcased in its missions and presidios. Among the state's most popular historic landmarks, these religious and military establishments are enduring reminders of the days when Franciscan missionaries converted native inhabitants to Catholicism and leather-jacketed soldiers flexed their political and military might. Today vacationers and history buffs alike enjoy the distinctive architecture, unique religious art and artifacts, beautiful courtyard gardens, and many quiet, contemplative spaces found in and around these historic sites.

Inside you'll find:

Detailed descriptions of twenty-three missions and four presidios
Historical information on each site
Maps and directions
Listings of mission festivals and Sunday Mass schedules
Nearby points of interest.

Whether you live in California or are planning a visit, A FalconGuide to California's Missions and Presidios shows you where to go and what to do to get the most out of your time exploring California's Spanish and Mexican legacy.
