Course Description

The history and architecture of the Spanish missions represent a unique convergence of Spanish, Mexican, and Native American cultures in the New World. Conceived as an expression of Spain’s desire to establish a religious foothold in the New World, the missions left their imprint upon the cultural, historical, and geographical development of California and the Southwest.
