This 235-year-old structure anchors the city: historically, spiritually and culturally. Plus, you literally can’t get a cup of coffee without noticing its ancient walls.
But Mission San Juan Capistrano is more than an attractive town centerpiece. It's also a hub of activities: Zorro and Lewis and Clark exhibits, concerts and festivals, lectures, Native American basket weaving and children’s activities such as cornhusk dollmaking.
We love that Mission managers reach out to the community with programs that include overnight family sleepovers and gala dinners.
And the Mission Preservation Foundation works hard to keep this state historic landmark in shape.
Is it fair to say this isn’t your average tourist attraction? It’s a fully integrated part of San Juan Capistrano. We love it.
