Mission La Purisima Concepcion

HE eleventh Mission, founded in 1787. It was originally a most beautiful thing from an architectural point of view erected on a lovely plain in the Valley of Lompoc near the present little city of that name. It was used mainly as a monastery to which the Mission Fathers were wont to retire for special prayer and contemplation. So completely fallen to ruin is La Purisima now that the heedless traveler, may easily overlook it.
