San Juan Capistrano, situated in the rolling hills between Dana Point and San Clemente, boasts award-winning schools, attractive neighborhoods, luxury homes, working ranches, equestrian property, parks, fine dining, new shopping and entertainment experiences. The beach is just minutes away.

This South Orange County city incorporated in April, 1961. Abundant parks, trails, easy freeway access, an Amtrak station and youth sports programs enhance the attraction of this vibrant community.

The City of San Juan Capistrano is home to over 34,000 people (plus a good number of horses and fair-weather swallows).

Historically, Father Fermin Lasuen founded San Juan Capistrano on October 30, 1775. Actually, SJC has the unique distinction of being founded twice. Eight days after the first occasion, news of an impending Indian attack forced Fr. Lasuen and his party to bury the bells of the mission and high-tail it back to San Diego. A year later, Father Junipero Serra headed the founding party as he and his men arrived at the former site and found the cross still standing. Soon the bells of the Mission were recovered and the ‘second’ founding took place November 1, 1776.

September 7, 1806 saw the official dedication date of The Great Stone Church, which for the next six years becomes the splendid edifice and pride of the Mission. Deemed the most prosperous year for the Capistrano Mission, it produced 500,000 pounds of wheat, 190,000 pounds of barley, 202,000 pounds of corn, 20,600 pounds of beans, 14,000 cattle, 16,000 sheep, and 740 horses.

On December 8, 1812, a devastating earthquake struck during a Mass and destroyed The Great Stone Church, and killing 40 people. The magnificent church would lay in ruin until attempts at restorations were made some forty years later.

The railroad arrived in 1881.

In 1936 a popular radio host, broadcasting from the Mission, announced to the world the “return of the swallows”. Hence began the Fiesta de las Golondrinas, the celebration marking the return of the swallows that still takes place today. (Supposedly the swallows migrate all the way to Argentina at the tip of South America.)

The city (finally) incorporated in 1961.

Here at the turn of the 21st century, the famous cliff swallows have turned a little fickle — seemingly preferring Chino Hills to their historic mission digs. Naturally, plans to lure them back are being hatched.

The entire city of San Juan Capistrano falls in ZIP Code 92675.
