AAA Editor Notes
Mission San Miguel Arcángel, 775 Mission St. on the s. edge of US 101, is still a parish church. The 1797 mission has many original decorations and paintings, including interior frescoes by 19th century artist Esteban Munras. The vaulted corridor is noted for its arches. The church reopened for Mass and events in 2009 after a 6-year, $6 million preservation and seismic retrofitting project. The mission holds a fiesta the fourth Sunday in September.
