Spanish Missions

A mission, from the Latin missum (English: sent), is a school or other institution founded for religious education and/or evangelization. Various missions were established by the Spanish in the New World (modern Latin America, mostly) as they colonized it, often slightly tweaked due to regional differences. The missions served as a base for both administering colonies as well as spreading Christianity.
