‘’The Mission we see today is a replica built in 1949. Felix Adrian Raynaud created a famous postcard of the Mission and the reproduction is based on his image.’’ 2


‘’In 1949 a replica of the original mission chapel was constructed on mission property to the right of the main church built in 1919. The replica has a Mudejar or star window said to have been copied from that at the Carmel Mission.’’2

Interesting fact

“San Rafael was badly damaged in an Indian attack led by Chiefs Marin and Quintin in February, 1829. Loyal neophytes saved the life of the mission padre, Fr. Juan Amoros, by hiding him in the marshes.”3

Interesting fact

“In 1846 John C. Fremont used the mission as his headquarters during the Mexican American War.”3

Interesting fact

“15 miles north of San Francisco at the native site of 'Anaguani. Since San Rafael was intended to be a "hospital" asistencia, a key consideration was that the location be in a sunnier and more protected environment than San Francisco, which was foggy, damp and windy. The original mission buildings were razed in 1870. In 1919 the new St. Raphael Parish Church, with an imposing tower, was built on the site of the original chapel.”3
