Mission San Juan Capistrano

Mission San Juan Capistrano is a historic landmark, museum, and Orange County Birthplace. This historic landmark was founded over 200 years ago as the 7th of 21 missions and features a still-standing chapel where Saint Serra once celebrated Mass. Nowadays, Mission San Juan Capistrano is a monument to California’s multicultural history that embraces its Spanish, Mexican, Native America, and European heritage.
Initially built by the Native Americans and Spanish Padres as a self-sufficient community, this Mission site was a center for religion, education, agriculture, and industry. The Mission San Juan Capistrano is famous for the Annual Return of the Swallows and welcomes over 300,000 visitors annually.
Founded in 1776, the iconic Mission San Juan Capistrano is Orange County’s most historic landmark and strives to serve as a helpful resource by providing a learning environment that nurtures and promotes an appreciation for history while providing a place for renewal, faith, and celebration.
This historic landmark is home to one-of-a-kind artifacts, paintings, and treasures. Visit the Mission San Juan Capistrano and enjoy the museum rooms, lush gardens, adobe buildings, koi-filled fountains, and the iconic bell wall -if you’re lucky, you’ll catch the daily bell-ringing tradition that honors the Saint Junipero Serra legacy.
