Mission San Delores and Basilica

Our last big visit in SF was to the Mission and Basilica San Dolores. The mission building is the oldest building in California, built in 1776 and the last remaining mission building in the 21 mission group of missions created in California by Father Junipero Serra. The old mission and cemetery are beautiful and the basilica is fairly simple (for a basilica) but elegant. While there we were treated to an impromptu concert from the organist rehearsing what was probably Bach’s organ music.
