Mission San Luis Rey

"In the still uncertain light of dawn, this edifice, of a very beautiful model, supported upon its numerous pillars, had the aspect of a palace. Instinctively I stopped my horse to gaze alone, for a few minutes, on the beauty of this sight." Written by Duhaut-Cilly in 1827.

This is the spot where Duhaut-Cilly made his observation of Mission San Luis Rey, this once inspiring cultural landscape has been hideously compromised and is unrecognizable today.
