Mission San Francisco de AsÃs, or Mission Dolores, is the oldest surviving structure in San Francisco and the sixth religious settlement established as part of the California chain of missions. The Mission was founded on June 29, 1776, by Lieutenant JosÃ© Joaquin Moraga and Father Francisco PalÃ³u (a companion of Father Junipero Serra), both members of the de Anza Expedition, which had been charged with bringing Spanish settlers to Alta (upper) California, and evangelizing the local Natives, the Ohlone.(source)

i love this vertical presentation
One could do worse than to only visit the missions of California for the rest of one’s life! Founded on June 29, 1776, makes this very old for America. AMAZING! I’d love to visit it one day.
Boy, got to love this beautiful piece of architectural work, portrayed in the bright modeling light, revealing rich colors and details!
Beautiful shot! Great color.
An elegant church!
A beautiful shot of this mission church.
Love the scale you provided by including the itty bitty person. Very cool!
I loved these two trees in front of the church.
It’s like an honor guard. 🙂
