Mission Santa Barbara

Over the weekend Patrick and I drove up the coast and crossed another one of California’s Missions of the list, Mission Santa Barbara, founded in 1786.

Nicknamed “Queen of the Missions”, and sitting upon a hill that overlooks the town of Santa Barbara, as well as the ocean, Mission Santa Barbara has a color exterior, one that shows little of the horrors it endured during a massive earthquake in 1925, as it was fully restored just two years later in 1927.

Onto the next California mission!

  1. I can’t believe I spent a year in central CA and did not go to this queen of the missions. Lovely photos Jany and thank you for the vicarious day trip 🙂

  2. Be still my heart, do I adore every single element of your beautiful Southwestern outfit. From that jaw droppingly cool necklace to the elegant shawl, and of course the sublime skirt, it’s all so dreamy and exquisitely styled. The Mission is breathtaking, too – thank you very much for the lovely tour.
