Founded in 1775, San Juan Capistrano is the seventh mission and one of the most vibrant of the California missions, a center of cultural and community activities. Mission San Juan Capistrano, historic landmark and museum, is the Birthplace of Orange County. It features a chapel still standing where Saint Serra once celebrated Mass. Today, it is a monument to California’s multi-cultural history, embracing its Native American, Spanish, Mexican and European heritage. Originally built as a self sufficient community by Spanish Padres and Native Americans, the Mission was a center for agriculture, industry, education and religion. Many visitors come in March to see the swallows that return every year to the area. Often called the "Jewel of the Missions" for its beautiful architecture, visitors flock here to see the ruins of the Great Stone Church which collapsed in an 1812 earthquake, the chapel with ornate golden altar from Spain and beautiful grounds.
