Mission Fountain and Reflection (2005)

The Moorish-style fountain in the main courtyard of Mission San Juan Capistrano reflects the arcade and campanile of the Mission’s north corridor. The north corridor originally held Mission’s bodega, the warehouse that stored raw materials for the goods Indian conscripts manufactured at the mission. The fountain with its water lilies and koi was added in the 1920s as part of Father St. John O’Sullivan’s restoration project.
