Mission San Juan Bautista
June 24, 1797 - Father Fermín Francisco de Lasuén founded Mission San Juan Bautista, the 15th of the 21 California missions. Known as “The Mission of Music,” the church has had an unbroken succession of pastors from its foundation. Fun fact: Scenes in Hitchcock’s Vertigo were filmed at the Mission.
