Early this year, we visited the “American Riviera” also known as Santa Barbara, California. In this city lies the sacred site of Mission Santa Barbara, the 10th mission that was founded. One of the amazing things about this mission is its grandeur in architecture compared to other missions. We were lucky to have the tourist guide available and was about to start when we arrived in this place. Too many interesting facts and legends among the locals were shared as we tour around the site. We were told that this is the “queen of the missions” due to its architecture and graceful beauty.

This mission was founded on December 4, 1786
