The mission’s founding priest, Padre José Altimira, established Mission San Francisco Solano as a replacement for both San Francisco de Asís and San Rafael and as headquarters to all the missions. Altimira began construction on the mission before the plans were confirmed; although his superiors disapproved of his plan, he was nevertheless allowed to proceed.
