Local Color & Doors – San Juan Bautista

South of San Jose is the colorful historic town of Mission San Juan Bautista. It’s a place filled with Spanish-influenced color and architecture, and stone, wooden, and western false front early California structures. The town is situated in an unspoiled agricultural valley along the San Andreas Fault. When in San Juan Bautista, visitors feel like they’ve stepped back in time to a slower paced, simpler life.

On my last visit to San Juan Bautista in September, I came across a variety of colorful  doors to share with you for Norm Frampton’s Thursday Doors Feature. The collage in the featured image captures the Spanish-influenced colors of San Juan Bautista. Enjoy!
