The City of History – Est. 1869
San Juan Bautista is a unique village, alive with early California history and home to one of the most authentic, picturesque and pristine missions along the California mission trail. A deep commitment to preservation has endowed the city with historic authenticity, including a nationally registered historic district, a main street lined with buildings straight out of the old west and original adobes dating back two centuries. By embracing multicultural performing arts and artists, festivals and street fairs the community celebrates entertainment year round. Surrounded on all sides by untouched hillsides, organic fields and natural habitats, the call to nature and the rustic outdoors compliments every experience. Explore >
