Mission 19, La Pur

Lompoc, CA

View from footbridge -- La Purisima is the only one of the missions to be managed as a California State Historical Park. There is a modern visitor center at the entrance to the park; the footbridge leads to the restored mission and fields over a creek that likely served as a water supply fo the mission.
