1. Mission San Antonio de Pala Marker
Inscription. Located 23 miles east of San Luis Rey de Francia, this assistant mission was founded in 1810. The church was dedicated June 13, 1816 by Fray Antonio Peyri. Damaged by earthquake in 1899; restored 1903 when archetypal paintings were whitewashed. Later restored authentically, including replication of original murals painted by Indian artist Antonio Lugo. This tiny “mission” still serves – beside the Cupeños – the Luiseño band of Palatinguas (the Indians for whom it was built).

Don't miss seeing the campanario, it is the only freestanding one of its kind in the Alta California mission chain. It draws its inspiration from an older belltower at Juarez, Mexico.
