It takes a couple hours to go through if you listen to all the numbers so give yourself enough time.

I just love the Mission with all of its history, gardens, and charm. According to many stories, it is haunted and there are stories about that. I do feel that cemetary has a special air to it.

They offer a garden tour at 10:00 . Unfortunately we arrived too late to take it but it would be a great way to learn what plants and flowers are there. There is also a guided tour at 11:15 for $3.00. Be sure to pick up the Audio device to add to your experience. We were there about 3 hours and saw everything walking a leisurely pace. We really enjoyed the experience.

Get in on a guided tour. Tour guide had so many interesting facts that you would not get just wandering around on your own.

From Our Editors

When Father Lasuen founded Mission San Juan Capistrano in 1775, he created the 7th of modern California's 21 missions, which were intended to serve as epicenters of Christianity and Spanish culture in the New World. The mission system fell into disarray and disrepair during the war for Mexican independence and the Mexican-American War, but San Juan Capistrano remains, standing as a relic of that era and a testament to California's historical mélange of European and Native American cultures.

The mission invites visitors to learn more about the region’s history by exploring 10 acres of preserved adobe architecture, fountains, and gardens. Audio tours give groups a unique insight into the site's stories, and rotating exhibits feature artwork as well as historical and religious artifacts from San Juan Capistrano. Hands-on activities allow guests to recreate the experience of centuries-old mission life by making adobe bricks, panning for gold, or connecting computers to dial-up modems.
