Mission San Rafael Arcangel

Geography and Architecture

Like all Missions, San Rafael is on the coast, sunny and sheltered with crops. It is small and was built with adobe bricks and posts and it had a cemetary, church, padres' living quarters annd a hospital. 

Missions are unique because some of the things they have are arches, domed shaped roofs, bells and bell towers and stained glass windows. Rafael is small but it was built in an interesting way.
