San Diego Missions

A couple of months ago I headed south to San Diego. While there, I thought I would knock off two of the missions on the mission list – Mission San Diego de Alcalá and Mission San Luis Rey de Francia. Unfortunately, I made a rookie photographer mistake and overwrote my pictures of San Luis Rey. So alas, only de Alcala are below. The history of Spanish colonization and enslavement of California’s Indians to construct these buildings is an important and very overlooked part of the history of these structures. They stand as memorials of human suffering.
