How many of these have you visited?
The big ones everyone knows. . .
1. St. Louis
2. St. Augustine
3. San Francisco
4. San Antonio
5. San Diego
6. Santa Barbara
7. Santa Clara
8. Santa Ana
9. Santa Maria
11. St. Paul
And then the not so well known
12. St. Joseph, Illinois
13. St. Mary’s City, Maryland
I have visited 1,3,4,5,6,9,10,11 and 12. That I can remember. We were in Maryland a few years ago and so St. Mary's City is a possibility. This shows the Catholic Spanish and French influences.
And there are many more cities, states, rivers, parishes and counties named for saints. But. . .I only needed 13.
Los Angeles isn't named for angels, but for Mary. "El Pueblo de Nuestra Senora la Reyna de los Angeles" (although it's a little murky).
Sacramento is named for the sacraments (after the river), but that's not its original name.
Santa Cruz is Holy Cross.
