This beautiful stained glass window scene of Old Mission Santa Barbara with Saint Barbara looking on comes from Mission Dolores Basilica. Mission Dolores Basilica was built next door to Mission San Francisco de Asís in 1918. Thank you to two of our interns, Gary and Louise Matz, for taking this photo for us!
