Mission Basilica San Diego de Alcala, San Diego: 14 reviews and 42 photos
I found this sign is in one of the walled gardens next to the basilica. It was interesting reading this for the first time, living in San Diego and never bother to know about San Diego. Im not sure if you'll be able to read it from the photo, but here is a short version, what I found most interesting to read.
Saint Didacus -San Diego
On April 19, 1562 - the son of King Felipe II od Spain - was severely injured in a fall and was close to death. The Century old incorrupt body of Fray Diego was placed in bed with Carlos while the Franciscans prayed. In the morning Carlos awakened and attributed his recovery to the vision of a Franciscan friar he had seen while inconsious.
The king and his son petitioned to Rome to have the Fray Diego declared a Saint.
In 1855 Fray Diego was declared saint.
