Mission San Juan Capistrano
(circa 1776)

The seventh mission founded November 1, 1776, by Fr. Junipero Serra. In 1777, the first little church was built, a modest structure that is still in use today. Considered the oldest church in California, it is called "Serra Chapel" because it is the only building still standing where Fr. Serra had celebrated Mass. Visitors can also view the Padres Quarters, Industrial Area, Soldiers Barracks, Cemetery and The Great Stone Church.
