Mission San Gabriel Arcángel

Updated on April 11, 2010

Pride of the Missions

Father Junipero Serra was considered by his contemporaries to be an exceptionally devout missionary with great courage, remarkable intelligence and persistence. On the birthday of Mary, September 8, 1771, under Fr. Serra's direction, Fathers Pedro Cambon and Joseph de la Somera founded the San Gabriel Mission. (Text and image from mission's official site.)

More info on Mission San Gabriel Arcángel

The Mission San Gabriel Arcángel is a fully functioning Roman Catholic mission and a historic landmark in San Gabriel, California. Site of the first hospital in Alta California, the settlement was founded by Spaniards of the Franciscan Order on "The Feast of the Birth of Mary" (September 8) in 1771. The Mission, often referred to as the "Godmother of the Pueblo of Los Angeles," was designed by Father Antonio Cruzado (who hailed from Córdoba, Spain, which accounts for the strong Moorish influence).

      [in reply to layda] Well, it's located in San Gabriel, CA. You can find the exact street address on Wikipedia and their official homepage, both of which are linked on this site.

      I have been having a difficult time finding the dimensions for the San Gabriel Arcangel Mission. I think it would be easy to build the model if I had the dimension to scale down. I can't find them anywhere I have looked yet.
