Museums & Historical Sites

Mission San Juan Capistrano

The birthplace of Orange County, Mission San Juan Capistrano, was founded more than two centuries ago. Today it is a monument to Californias’ multi-cultural history, embracing its Native American, Spanish, Mexican and Europan heritage. Originally built as a self sufficient community by Spanish padres and Indians, the Mission was a center for agriculture, industry, education and religion.

Visitors will discover many areas of interest within the Mission walls. You can hear the tolling of century old bells and walk down its time worn paths. The serenity and peace amid the 10 _ acres of lush gardens and cool fountains, cloistered by old adobe walls, offers visitors seclusion from the sights and sounds of a busy world. Learn about the Serra Chapel, padres quarters, industrial area, soldiers barracks, and cemetery.
