Pictorially visit each of the 21 prominent and restored California Missions as you follow the Royal Road pioneered by the Spaniards when they colonized California in the name of their king. The road started as a 650 mile foot trail connecting the chain of missions established between San Diego in the south and Sonoma in the north. As the mission settlements grew traffic increased and the narrow trail became a well traveled road.
The primary purpose for making this film was the desire on the part of the maker to present to the viewer a brief accurate account of the story of the Spanish conquest and of the courageous padres who brought Christianity and civilization to the Pacific Coast.
