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.
