    A must see mission

    Ruins from 1812 earthquake. Heavy on the Serra adoration- not much mention of the Native America victims. But the grounds are beautiful and peaceful

    Doing the audio tour is not essential for the tour but it is helpful. Enjoy the beauty of this place and look for the koi fish.

    This is mission is rich with California history. Don't bother with bringing stuff to do. Just park downtown, walk to the mission and visit the historic district and all its shops.

    Did you know that the Chapel in Mission San Juan Capistrano - built in 1782 - is the oldest building in California, still in use today?

    entrance is on the Ortega Hwy meets Camino Capistrano. We didn't know at first so mistaken San Juan Capistrano church as Mission but found out after few minutes inside the church

    Fuel up your Nook, Kindle or iPad with Gathering the Indigo Maidens by Cecilia Velástegui. The story touches on the real-life historical figure, Modesta Ávila from San Juan Capistrano in 1889.

    Centerpiece is a statue of a missionary forcing himself on a native boy. Oh! You Catholics.

    In addition to taking pictures of the mission, you'll also want to photograph the gardens. You can take a garden tour. Check out their photo policy if you're looking to do commercial photography. Read more

    Mission San Juan Capistrano offers 10 acres of history dating from 1776. The gardens are perfect for relaxing, the mission’s treasures priceless and in the summer concerts are held under the stars.
