We took the train up from San Diego. It was a magical day. The grounds are still beautiful and there is a wonderful feeling of peacefulness there.

From Our Editors

When soon-to-be canonized Father Junípero Serra founded Mission San Juan Capistrano on All Saints Day in 1776, 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, crafting arrowhead necklaces, or connecting computers to dial-up modems.
