Mission #18 San Luis Rey De Francia

Mission San Luis Rey De Francia "King of the Missions" was the second mission we stopped at. This is mission #18, founded June, 13, 1798. This mission was built to help bridge the gap in the El Camino Real.

Mission #1 San Diego De Alala

The first mission we stopped at was actually the first mission built. San Diego De Alcala "Mother of the Missions" was founded July 16, 1769. Fr. Junipero Serra was to begin working on the mission, while Governor Portola continued by foot up north to Monterey CA.
