Mission San Juan Capistrano
The jewel of the California missions and Orange County’s only mission is Mission San Juan Capistrano, founded in 1776. Created to help raise funds for specialized and comprehensive work at the Mission is the Mission Preservation Foundation, which enjoys consistent support from the Rancho Mission Viejo family. Originally established to complete the restoration of the Mission’s Great Stone Church, the Preservation Foundation is committed to ensuring that Mission San Juan Capistrano remains the most significant historic site in Orange County.
