In keeping with the theme that the Missions really feel distinct from one another, check out how Moorish and angular this architecture is. This is because the first Padre, Antonio Cruz came from Cordova and had its Cathedral in mind.
San Gabriel may look like a fort from the outside but it is lovely and warm inside.
The museum is fun to wander around in, out of doors. I felt a sense of community participation.
