    It appears to be a Spanish Colonial church perhaps inspired by Mission Carmel in California. It is also a factory painting. The artist was not very skilled as he clearly struggled with linear perspective. (Can you see how the buildings curve and tilt to the right?)

    I knew it looked familiar lol I have been there several times. And all though very pronounced in the picture the building does lean to the right. If I remember correctly the building was almost completely destroyed in the 1850's and spent 30 or so year without even a roof and most of the main support pillars where broken, they started restoration on it I believe in 1880's I think Can't remember exactly. It's been about 15 years since I have been there.
