Mission San Gabriel Arcangel
The 4th Mission on the California Mission Trail was founded by Father Junipero Serra in 1771 and it is a functioning Roman Catholic church today. It is a fortress like struture with narrow windows and walls about 5 feet thick. The San Gabriel Mission is located at 428 South Mission Drive in the Los Angeles County city of San Gabriel.

Mission San Fernando Rey de Espana
The 17th mission on the California Mission Trail was named in honor of Spain's King Ferdinand III in 1797. The mission's convent building, one of the largest free-standing adobes in California, had to be rebuilt after a 1971 earthquake. Inside the church, above the altar there is a statue of Saint Ferdinand that was transported from Spain about 300 years ago and there is a flower shaped fountain in the old Mission Plaza. The San Fernando Mission is located at 15151 San Fernando Mission Boulevard in the San Fernando Valley and Los Angeles city neighborhood of Mission Hills
