Heritage of the Missions

The evangelization of California in the time of the New Spain brought with it dramatic changes in the territory: the process of acculturation derived into the extinction of the indigenous cultures decimated upon the exit of the Jesuits from the peninsula. The objects for liturgy and cult gave way to a new paradigm in the process of secular population: the culture of the ranch and the construction of the identity of the region. The ranch house, with the adoption of building systems based in the materials of the region, as well as the development of activities such as cattle-breeding and leathercraft, exemplify the transition from the period of the missions to the secular population of Baja California.
