San Juan Capistrano

San Juan Capistrano


This city was built up around Mission San Juan Capistrano, which sets the Spanish architectural style of the town. This provides the town with an incredible sense of California history and harbors some of the oldest buildings in the state. These structures occur in the Los Rios Historic District, where three adobe buildings remain in the neighborhood from the 18th century, making it the oldest occupied neighborhood in California. One of the most notable phenomena that occur here is the annual migration of cliff swallows, a bird species that flies to the mission each year from Argentina. The city takes pride in maintaining 40% of its land as open space and park land. Only 10% of developable land remains vacant.
