    Mission San Jose was founded June 11, 1797 by Father Fermin Francisco de Lasuen on a site which was part of a natural highway by way of the Livermore Valley to the San Juaquin Valley. It is the fourteenth of the 21 Spanish Missions in Alta California. They were founded to secure Spain's claim to this land and to teach the native people Christianity and the Spanish way of life.

    hi john-

    very picturesque photo, thanks for sharing it. i like the silhouetted trees but you've maintained the detail in the mission building itself.

    in all this time living in the bay, i've only seen one mission, mission dolores, and have yet to go inside. i have been to mission san juan capistrano, but didn't see any swallows.

    Thanks Ricky, I didn't see any swallows at Mission San Jose either but a lot of European Starlings and Acorn woodpackers there.
