Bell Lights on the Royal Road being erected. - San Juan Capistrano

Bell Lights on the Royal Road being erected.

Streets are lined with 'Mission Bell' Lightposts

All along the El Camino Real there are light posts in the shape of MIssion Bells. The 21 California Missions were built all along the El Camino Real from San Diego to Sonoma, about 30 miles North of San Francisco. In the City of San Jaun Capistrano you can see these bell shaped lights on almost all its main streets. This is to honor the Mission and the first road in California, the El Camino Real,which means 'The Royal Highway' in Spanish.
