From the late 18th Century to the mid-19th Century, Spanish and Mexican settlers, with the help of the Mutsun, built 128 adobe buildings, including Mission San Juan Bautista. The City was named in honor of the Mission, which was established in 1797 as the 15th of the 21 California Missions.
Eleven historic buildings have been preserved as art pieces and can be viewed in Galleries 1&2. Click on a landmark image to enlarge the image and reveal its story. Read more about the history of San Juan Bautista on the "Lift your Spirit" website.
