The Landmark Project: CHL# 232

CHL# 232 MISSION SAN ANTONIO DE PADUA

Mission San Antonio de Padua, established on July 14, 1771, was the third in a series of missions founded in Alta California by Father Junípero Serra. Its picturesque setting in the valley of the San Antonio River within the Santa Lucia Range makes it one of today’s most outstanding examples of early mission life.

Also on the US National Register of Historic Places.

Descriptions of each landmark are from the California Office of Historical Preservation website.
