Father Serra, or Junípero Serra, was a Franciscan friar of the 1700s. Father Serra lived in different countries throughout his 70-year-old life. Serra was born in the town of Petra on the Mediterranean island of Majorca. Majorca is Spain's largest island. Therefore, as of his birth year of 1713, Father Serra was in Spain. He remained here until 1749, when Serra traveled to North America and taught at Mexico City. So Father Serra also has been to Mexico. He remained here until 1768, when he visited Baja California. From here he embarked on a journey to the California of the United States. Serra jumped between the U.S. and Mexico until his death in 1784, in Carmel, California. Overall, the countries that Father Serra was in are Spain, Mexico and the United States of America.

That is the correct spelling of "Father Serra" -- Junipero Serra (1713-1784) was a Franciscan friar and missionary who founded Mission San Carlos Borroméo de Carmelo in Spanish California (now Carmel, CA).

Father Junipero Serra is credited with discovering California. Once he arrived there, he set up the first missions in the area.
