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!

The first two blues were a lovely unusual shade. Great finds, all of them
Wonderful colors. I am going to follow you, because besides the doors, I love the building that the doors are attached too.
Hi Geri, Thanks for stopping by and for the follow. I’m delighted you enjoyed the doors and colors of San Juan Bautista. It’s one of my favorite little towns in Northern California. I look forward to looking at your blog.
Ohh, my, Donna, these are some of the prettiest doors I’ve even seen, especially the ones in the first four photos. I love every bit of this town and would find it hard to leave. Gorgeous!
Thanks, Manja. San Juan Bautista is one of our favorite little towns to visit.
