Mission Dolores

Mission San Francisco de Asís, more commonly known as Mission Dolores, is the oldest surviving structure in San Francisco - the original building in the foreground of this photo was dedicated in 1791.
The larger structure shown here was completed in 1918.
It includes a graveyard.
Lovely artwork can be seen.
Next weekend I'll show you some photos from inside the basilica. Please visit Inspired Sunday for more photos on this theme, and Our World Tuesday for assorted shots from around the world.
