The San Jaun Capistrano mission "was founded in 1776, by Spanish Catholics of the Franciscan Order. Named for Giovanni de Capistrano, a 15th-century theologian and 'warrior priest' who resided in the Abruzzo region of Italy, San Juan Capistrano has the distinction of being home to the oldest building in California still in use, a chapel built in 1782. Known alternately as 'Serra's Chapel' and 'Father Serra's Church,' it is the only extant structure where it has been documented that Junipero Serra celebrated Mass. One of the best known missions in Alta California, and one of the few missions to have actually been founded twice—others being Mission San Gabriel Arcángel and Mission La Purísima Concepción."

A curious gathering of these 3 images, obviously not a commercial mount, with the 3rd image [Palm Trees], having been cropped, with loss. The first time we've ever seen such a format.
