Thank you very much Maxine, and Patty for your great comments.
Happy New year to you both.

Patty, Thanks for the history. I read it a long time ago, and remembered of it being built in the 17th century. If I remember right it was a Fort to begin with. Army Fort or some such.
I forget how thick those adobe walls are, but they are very thick. One of these days I'll go back & read more on it's history.

We have a lot of old Churches from that vintage or close, in our area.

What a beautiful capture of this very old, historic church! It was constructed by the Franciscans in the years between 1772 and 1816, so it has been around for quite awhile. How lovely it looks at Christmas. I am glad to see this earned you an AC, as it is certainly deserving of one, Gil!!

Happy New Year,
Patty

Merry Christmas [Belated] Gil!! And Congratulations too on your blue border award for this lovely holiday composition!!!! I love this architecure!! In fact,I gave my son-in-law [one of them] a handmade hanging tile of the San Jose Mission in San Antonio [artist-M McNay] that I'd had sitting around the house for a while,and remembered that he had lived in Texas,and might appreciate that,,and he did,,and this is sorta what your photo reminds me of. I hope you and Yours had a very loving and wonderful Christmas together! I feel bad for the folks in the Northern and Eastern U.S. that are still having issues,and may have not celebrated the holiday yet..
Thank you for thinking of us here!! HUGS!!!!:))
