Travels north, east, south, and west of our Oceanside home base.

Mission Nuestra Señora de la Soledad [Our Lady of Solitude] was founded in 1791. (It is interesting to learn how many cities were named after their missions.) The mission was left in ruins in 1835 after Mexico gained its independence from Spain and the missions that were allegiant to the Spanish Catholic Church were disestablished by Mexico. In the 1950s the pile of adobe bricks that remained were eventually restored. It is now a functioning Catholic church and museum. The bell in the museum is the original.

    This is so cool because when we went there, it was locked up tight. I am so excited to see the interior. BEAUTIFUL. Thank you for finishing our ‘trip’ for us. Spectacular!

    1. Their hours are limited. They are closed Monday and Tuesday. And then are only open from 10-4 the other days. Or maybe you were here during the pandemic?
      We really liked the ceiling in the chapel.
