I was told that the Mission in Ventura was a good one to stop and see so I made it a point to go there. Built in 1782, this was the 9th Mission to have been established by the Spanish in California. It sits right on Main Street in present day Ventura.
Right across the street from the Mission was a beautiful fountain adorned in blue and white tile.
Unlike other fountains I have seen, this one also had a little aquaduct while carried the water down to an identical fountain at the other end of a pedestrian walkway.
And the walkway was lined with several large flower planters, covered in the same blue and white tile. Very impressive.
