    Cool place to walk around during the summer. It has a lot of history, but you can do it in just a small amount of time. Good to take kids or out of towners if you're already walking around San Juan Capistrano. It's outdoor and the gardens are pretty so it makes a good stop in the area.

    Great little bit of California history.

    This place is so beautiful. Every aspect of nature's evolution is visible throughout the mission. Whether it be the ruins of the old church to all the thousands of different types of flowers. It's a little island of peace in the middle of a quaint little town.

    Mission San Juan Capistrano offers 10 acres of history dating from 1776. The gardens are perfect for relaxing, the mission’s treasures priceless and in the summer concerts are held under the stars.

    California's first winery was actually located in San Juan

    Centerpiece is a statue of a missionary forcing himself on a native boy. Oh! You Catholics.

  • Dave H. on 04/29/13

    Beautiful setting, gorgeous gardens and very atmospheric historical buildings - highly recommended.

    Great place for an afternoon of photography. When you're done, head down to Dana Point for a bite!
