Founded in 1786 by Spanish Catholic Church on the feast day of Saint Barbara, Mission Santa Barbara was the tenth mission of religious conversion of native indigenous people in Santa Barbara County. Its extensive waterworks are a filter house, Spanish gristmill, sections of aqueducts, and two reservoirs served as part of Santa Barbara water system. To those who are most interested in natural beauty of the Golden State, Kenny Slaught emphasizes the Mission La Purisima Concepción historic park, formerly known as Catholic chapel. Managed and maintained by the California Department of Parks and Recreation, the park offers guided tours at a visitors’ center. Also known as El Presidio, Royal Presidio of Santa Barbara is a former military installation. Established under King Carlos III’s orders as a way of expanding government benefits for residents of the Santa Barbara Channel region of California, the building attracts millions of tourists due to its archaeological contribution to national history.
