The northernmost of the California missions founded by Father Junipero Serra, this mission is the oldest structure in San Francisco, dating from 1788. Walk inside and behold Spanish Colonial San Francisco beneath roof beams held together with rawhide strips. The graveyard includes the remains of both noble colonial families and the Native Americans who were conscripted to build and then serve the Mission. The museum houses artifacts and manuscripts. Check the website for details on events and more.

Mission Delores (1776) is the oldest building still standing in San Francisco, and was where the Catholic missionaries who founded the city for King Carlos III of Spain first settled. Depending on one's views, it is either a symbol of colonial oppression, Hispanic heritage, or the city's historical birthplace.
In any case, it is well worth a visit for the history, old altar, and the only cemetary left in the city center (all other graves were dug up and moved to Colma some time ago. To see the "Land of the Dead" for yourself, take BART to the Colma station to the south)
It's hard to imagine that this church stood among pastures and green hills in the early days of the settlement of San Francisco. Now, it's a little oasis within the bustling city. For movie buffs.... This is the church that Kim Novak visits in the movie "Vertigo".
