History can be beautiful

The Spanish mission at San Juan Capistrano is a beautifully preserved monument to the courage and conviction of Fr. Junipero Serra and his followers, who founded 21 missions in California. The great stone church partially collapsed in an 1812 earthquake and was never rebuilt; today the remnants have been stabilized and the grounds overflow with colorful shrubs, trees and flowers. Visit from mid-March to October and you can catch a glimpse of the famed swallows. After visiting, head to Dana Point for lunch at the marina.
