Along the front of the mission are several of these statues representing each California mission. I don't know if you can see it in the photo, but there is a small mission sitting on the priest and the name & date of the mission are inscribed on him.
The garden has several statues spread around it. Here is Blakester sitting by Father Junipero Serra, the founder of the mission.
There were two crosses that were made from bricks taken from the original mission building on this site.
Conman was excited that the first California mayor was killed on this exact spot. We weren't sure what he meant until we read the plaque ourselves.
Around the back of the mission is a large excavation site. Artifacts are still being found that date back to the early 1800's. This is a view of a brick floor of the friary that was uncovered. There is a small museum that houses the found artifacts.
One of the displays shows how the roof beams have been restored.
