California’s history is very much intertwined with the Spanish missionaries and the remnants of that period in history dot the California coastline.  The Spanish missions today are a combination of church property and state property and blend working parish with tourist attraction.  Most charge a small admission fee ranging from $2 – $5 in order to view the churches and gardens.  But with the well manicured spectacular gardens and historic church buildings it is well worth the small change to tour these missions and capture them with your camera.
