Mission Basilica San Diego de Alcala
This mission is an artifact of North American history. California's first church, it was founded in 1769 by Father Junipero Serra himself. In 1775, it was burned down by protesting Native Americans. Then after being subsequently rebuilt, it was once again severely damaged in 1803 by an earthquake. Guided tours are available and the mission frequently hosts events. Still an active Roman Catholic Parish, it now sits in the midst of busy Mission Valley.
This is a picture of the museum not the actual Mission. Make sure if you are visiting you carfully check where the mission is. It is not at presidio park it is closer to Qualcom. We didn't realize we visited the Museum not the Mission until we were 200 miles away from San Diego.
This place is a must see for people that love history You should do your own research before you go, as there aren't too many people around to answer your questions. It is a really cool piece of California's history and is a very peaceful place. If you are in the area it is well worth seeing, but if you are doing a quick sightseeing trip you might make better use of your time elsewhere.
