Mission San Miguel

Mission San Miguel (east of Big Sur) was founded in 1797. It is one of California’s most authentic and beautiful missions. The colorful murals inside the church are the original ones painted by Indian artists. Mission bells were central to life at the mission, and were blessed upon installation. Bells were rung in a special way, and were used to call people to worship, meals, work, and gatherings.
