Mission San Rafael Arcangel

Hardships and Changes to the Mission

Picture
Like all missions, San Rafael had problems. People got sick and the soldiers fought and got wounds and some may have died. Then, the missions got secularized. After, it went into ruins and a Gothic-style church was built on the site. Years later, a new San Rafael was constructed but it wasn't in the same position. Over the years, Rafael really did change alot.
