1. Dryad Road Entrance to La Senora''s Mojica Hacienda.  Note the small plaza between street and entrance.  Visitors resting on the ironwood bench enjoy soothing fountain (both from Mexico circa late 1800s.) 
  2. In Mexico, this Nativity Scene, circa 1900, was carried by eight altar boys from the rear of the church, along its main aisle and placed before the Priest celebrating the Masses of the Christmas Season.  In 2006, the piece was identified in Mexico procured and imported for La Senora''s Collection with the assistance of Miguel Landa, Head Gardener at the Mojica Hacienda since since 1980.
  3. Guests entering La Senora''s iron gates, stroll past the fern and palm shade garden leading to a typical John Byers front loggia.  Lined with luminarios, one finds  a glowing pathway as an evening at the Mojica Hacienda comes to a close.
  4. Throughout the world, in Catholic gardens you will frequently find a tribute to St. Francis (San Francisco in Spanish).  The patron saint of nature and small animals, you will find San Francisco has his own shrine near the historic fish ponds.  The lemon trees in the area behind him, were planted in the 1940s by Mary Anita Loos during her residency.  Where the lemon trees now stand, there were previously three hitching posts and a turnaround for the SM to Topanga Canyon Mail Stage.
  5. Throughout Mexico and its former lands that were once part of a greater Mexican holding, shrines to Our Lady of Guadalupe are prevalent.  At the Mojica Hacienda along there are six separate shrines to her and the carved wooden gates at the working entry to the land says 'La Finca de Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe'  (The farm of Our Lady of Guadalupe).  This shrine is composed of 1920-30s art tiles (including Malibu tiles).  Embedded in the property are art tiles from every Southern California art tile maker of the 1930s.
  6. The Music Salon constructed to showcase the ''gift'' of Jose Mojica''s Tenor voice.  Mojica was one of Edison''s original 'Three Tenors'.  He starred in 14 Fox Films, becoming dubbed 'The Valentino of Mexico' before becoming a Franciscan Monk in Peru. 
  7. As late as the 1920s when Jose Mojica built the Hacienda, Santa Monica Creek still flowed within its own dirt banks.  Small underground streams rose to the surface along with springfed waters to feed meandering creeks and ponds throughout the Canyon.  This rock bridge over a stream leading to the fish pond provides a meditative pathway to the rancho era chapel.
