"Day 3: Missions San Juan Capistrano & Fernando" California Favorite Tip by Carmela71

California General: 347 reviews and 301 photos


Favorite thing: San Juan Capristano Mission

This Mission is a historical monument of the multi cultural history of California. Here the history of the mix of Spanish, Mexican, Native Americans and Europeans.

It was found by Fray Juniperro Serra, (yes, also founded quite a few more along California) on 1776 and later abandoned. Even if it was one of most developed and successful Missions of the Area, being auto sufficient .

San Fernando del Rey Mission did not impress me as much as the previous one
