ABSTRACT
The article focuses on history of missions in California. Each year thousands of tourists and students visit the California missions. Over time, the missions have gone through many changes. The earliest structures were replaced by sturdier buildings with tall towers and lone arcades. But even these solid buildings eventually fell into ruin and later were reconstructed. Missionaries, visitors, novelists and scholars have expressed different opinions about the California missions. These observers often have disagreed about the impact of the missions on the Indians in California.
