Not too long ago, I visited Mission San Juan Capistrano in California.
There’s a self guided audio tour that you can pay for while you walk around the grounds.
I wasn’t too fond of the numbering system of the audio tour (no logical order). After a while, I gave up trying to listen to the audio and just wandered around.
The grounds were beautiful, even if it was cold and rainy.
The original church collapsed during an earthquake in the middle of a mass, killing and injuring several people.
There is a small church there now, a part of the original structures. It’s still active, but it is significantly smaller than the original.
Overall, I loved the blend of California history and Catholic history. It’s a beautiful place to visit at least once.
Does anyone have a mission they love to visit? Have you been to this one?
