El Camino Real or The Kings Highway
In 1769 , Gaspar de Portola and Father Junipero Serra led an expedition that established missions and presidios (forts) in San Diego and Monterrey and discovered the hitherto unknown port of San Francisco.? Serra, who remained in California afterPortola departed, together with his successors established a 600 mile system of roads called El Camino Real; 21 missions from San Diego in the south to Sonoma in the north; 4 undermanned presidios (forts); and several small pueblos (towns). This constituted the high water mark of Spanish colonial involvement in California.
