Missions of the Southern Coast;1996, p28
Located along the southernmost points of El Camino Reá l, the missions of San Diego de Alcalá, San Luis Rey de Francia, and San Juan Capistrano may be characterized as the southern coast missions. Because San Diego de Alcalá was the first mission in what is now California, the settlement had more difficulty getting started than did the missions that followed. Mission San Diego de Alcalá. Father Serra was pleased with the mission site for San Diego de Alcalá. Communication between the Spaniards and the Native Americans was difficult because the groups spoke different languages. With its varied economic activities, Mission San Luis Rey produced many of the goods that the padres, soldiers, and neophytes required for survival. INSETS: Untitled;Pablo Tac.
