USA - California Missions (US-294847)

I really love this map card!!! :)) Not only because it's a map card, but also because it's about the history and religion, which I'm interested in :) There's also information about this card on it's back side, so I can share it with you:

The founding of the Spanish Missions in California furnished an epic in history. these historical monuments are reminders of the great Franciscan adventure. Years of patient labor, decades of heroic sacrifice by Fray Junipera Serra and his Franciscan brothers lie behind the era of the founding of the 21 Missions and their branches, the ruins of which still stand in wonder and beauty at various points along 600 miles of California's glorious coastal region.
