Founded in 1771, this mission was California’s fourth one and has strong ties to the origin of the city of Los Angeles. With clear views from the street, the front area had bright blue benches for seating in front of the fountain with colorful, vibrant flowers surrounding it. The day we went, an art gallery was open to the public and we were able to walk throughout the grounds in order to explore the area. It was a sunny, clear day – great day to visit the mission!
