Description: The Jesuit Catholic Priests arrive in the Peninsula to christianize the Native peoples and colonize the region for Spain. We'll show the massive and beautiful missions in Baja California. Many are still standing today. Also, little information is known about the first Spanish soldiers who accompany the Jesuit Priests in the late 17th Century. Learn their stories from one of the descendants who travels to San Diego to tell his ancestor's history. Join Host Elsa Sevilla on a new documentary series on early Baja California History.
