California Missions Tour: Mission Purisima Concepcion (Lompoc)

Purisima Concepcion
Founded December 8, 1787 (11th mission)

This is, by far, my favorite mission. The remote location adds to its feel of authenticity. Livestock like horses, pigs, and sheep add to the realism. There's even a Native American wigwam! I climbed inside and found it quite spacious. The main complex had quarters for soldiers, a blacksmith shop, a church, etc. An amazing experience...for only two bucks.
