Ring My Bell

In San Diego, California

“Do what you know best; if you’re a runner, run. If you’re a bell, ring.” Ignas Bernstein

At the Mission de Alcala, the first and southernmost of the 21 California missions, the interior courtyard view of the bell tower casts an iconic spell.

Founded in 1769, and in its current location since 1774, this mission pre-dates the establishment of the United States itself. The peaceful serenity one finds on its grounds today is betrays its tumultuous history.
