ABSTRACT
The article discusses California missions in modern times. In the Los Angeles region, the churches at San Gabriel Arcángel and San Buenaventura had remained in use and so were in better shape than most other mission churches. Visitors to the mission of San Gabriel can view the original winery and the open fireplace where cooks prepared the noon meal. Mission San Gabriel also features a patio filled with tropical plants and cacti. Archaeologists and historians continue to study the missions to learn more about their history.
