San Juan Bautista

On my way down to Carmel Valley, I stopped for a little sight-seeing in San Juan Bautista. It's one of the original Spanish mission towns. The mission was established in 1797. Here are the mission bells.

San Juan Bautista turned out to be very quaint. Here's a cottage that's part of the State Historic Park centered around the only remaining Spanish plaza in California.

Another preserved building from the early days is the jail. It has a single cell and was mostly used to hold drunks. To me it looks like something straight out of Bonanza.
