San Fernando Mission Convento

Continuing to explore the San Fernando Mission, here are some photos of the Convento building. This is the only original building remaining in the mission, built between 1808 and 1822, and it contains many fascinating artifacts.
It used to be the priests' residence, but is basically a museum at this point.
There were several signs indicating important people who had visited, including the Pope if I remember correctly.
All photos were taken without flash. I'm linking to the Our World Tuesday meme. And as I just found out about the Inspired Sunday meme, I'm adding a link to that - I'll have several posts for that in the next few months.

  10. Nice photos of the San Fernando mission, Al. It was not one we visited --I think we saw 9 out of the 21 still remaining. The statutes and room are beautiful!

  12. «Louis» overlooked this (by not scrolling down) on his previous visit. He's glad he took another look - he likes the missions.

    In the event you don't know about the meme, you might want to link this to InSPIREd Sundays.

    «Louis'» Sunday Bridges meme opens at 22h00m central Europe time Saturday night in case you have a bridge you want to link.
