This Mission is one of several Franciscan sites founded by Franciscan Junipero Serra. It houses the oldest in-use building in California, the Serra Chapel. On the grounds are the remains of a large stone church. Built in the late 1700s of stone with vaulted domes, the church was unlike the other Missions' adobe churches. In 1812 the church was destroyed by an earthquake.
