Mission San Juan
Founded in 1731, San Juan Capistrano is named for an Italian priest who joined Hungarian military commander János Hunyadi in fending off an Ottoman invasion in 1456. Like its sister missions, San Juan was founded to convert and house the local Coahuiltecan people. Over the years it came to serve increasingly diverse congregants as the surrounding farmland and the nearby community of Berg’s Mill drew Catholic immigrants from different parts of central Europe. Visitors can still attend mass or simply walk the grounds.
