Founded in 1776, the Mission is the seventh in the California mission chain and the centerpiece of San Juan Capistrano’s historic downtown. The “Jewel of the Missions” occupies a 10-acre site and includes the beautiful central courtyard, gardens and interpretive exhibits that bring the Spanish and prehistory eras to life. Serra Chapel, the only remaining original church in which Father Serra is known to have said Mass, and the ruins of the Great Stone Church are also found within the Mission walls.
