San Antonio Mission

Mission San Antonio de Padua

The crown jewel of the California missions, Mission San Antonio de Padua was founded by Fr. Junipero Serra in 1771 and, of all the missions, is the closest to the way it was during his life. It was the third of the 21 California missions and is still an active parish. There are picnic tables on the grounds of this secluded area and the ever-present garden blooms with roses in season. Mission San Antonio de Padua is one of the designated tour sights of the Juan Bautista de Anza National Historic Trail. For more info on the Anza Trail visit
