Mission Bells

Mission @SJCMission Bells @ San Juan Capistrano

A delightful visit to the mission at San Juan Capistrano on Memorial Day. There was a good crowd of folks who seemed, like us, to want to do something with the holiday and the chance to wander around the mission on a sunny day was the perfect outing. It’s the most intact of the missions in Southern California, so it offers a glimpse into the past, going back about 150 years. More than just a church: the mission was a compound of buildings, administration, kitchen-gardening and crop-growing.
