Mission San Juan Capistrano -- founded in 1776 by Spanish Catholics of the Franciscan Order. (I roughed this photo up a bit with scratches, etc. to give it an antique feel.)
Throughout the Mission, you'll see gorgeous flowers that attract pretty little hummingbirds.
Flowers floating in the fountain in the Mission courtyard.
Another "vintage" look - the old bell in the Mission courtyard.
Here's one of the rooms where the Spanish padres (priests) lived.
Another antique treatment - created by combining one of my Mission photos with a photo of a rough textured surface.
You've heard of the swallows returning to Capistrano each year, right? Here's where they've built their nests.
A great place to stop after your tour of the Mission: the Hidden House coffee shop, just down the road in San Juan Capistrano.
