No, the mission has not moved from its original location even though it has experienced fires and an earthquake. This mission was founded in 1772 with an addition completed in 1948.  

 

 

 

 

What does the mission look like? Use descriptive words. Address each of the

following:

  • Chapel~Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa is the mission that has a "L" shaped chapel
  • Bell wall or bell tower~2 bells were delivered from Lima, Peru in 1820
  • Quadrangle~A quad is a four sided figure. Inside of the quad protection was offered and daily living happened.
  • Priests’ quarters~They originally had square columns, but later got switched to round shape 
  • Indians’ quarters~Very rustic-the native american men were separated from the native american women

Cal Poly, SLO, farming, wineries, shops, and boutigues are some of the missions industries. 

 

 

 

What was the relationship between the Priests and the Indians?

Good at the begining as Governor Portola shared 9,000 pounds of bear meat with the hungry Indians. Later it suffered 3 Native American attacks in its first 2 years. Much later, under Father Martinez the padre earned the love of the Indians in charge.

 

 

 

Is it possible to visit the mission today?

Nice i like the details, and i enjoyed it because you told so many things you wouldn't expect with the mission, things that other people didn't have like having rather unfriendly Indians, and you added a lot of detail during that.
