why we can't find many of the Spanish missions from this period in Florida?
Ellie, when you tell us what years you are talking about, we will be able to help you.
i mean why cant we find the remain off the Spanish missions left.
p.s. i forgot to put remains in the oraginal question.
Elle, Here is your answer. The material from which these missions was made was not something that would last like the missions in the Southwest.
"The mission buildings of la Florida were built with posts set into the ground. The walls were palmetto thatch, wattle and daub or plank, or left open. The floors were clay, and the roofs are presumed to have been thatched. The church buildings in the missions averaged some 20 m by 11 m"
thanks so much i found the answer
