San Diego - The Mission


So, my main day in San Diego. How to start but with the Mission San Diego de Alcalá - one of many notable Spanish settlement sites across Las Californias, and one of few-to-several that I would actually see. Also not so far from my Motel.

I'm not really in the mood for writing history (and if you're in the mood for reading it, there's always wiki). Hence, expect photos. Also, expect overexposed sky at the Mission.

The obligatory facade shot, compare to an earlier iteration:
The Mission San Diego

The first interiors:
Priest's Quarters

The Main Basilica including Altar from afar...

...and from up close.

The Smaller Courtyard:

Some museum items:
Music of the Mission... gory Latin detail.

Keeping the Peace

The Chapel:

The Main Walled Area:
SoCal Cacti outside the Chapel

Mister Diego Himself
