Detailed Description:

The Mission San Diego was the very first mission of the twenty-one missions in California. Also known as the Mother of the Missions, it was founded on July 16, 1769 by Junipero Serra. It was California’s first church and is considered the birthplace of Christianity in the far West. It even serves as an active Catholic Parish today so it’s not uncommon to see weddings or other festivities of the church taking place.
