Mission San Juan Capistrano was founded on November 1, 1776 by Father Junipero Serra. It was the 7th mission in the 21 mission chain in Alta California. It was named for Saint John of Capistrano, Italy, theologian. It is the only mission to have been founded twice. Originally it was founded by Father Lasuen on October 30, 1775. Eight days after the founding the mission San Diego de Alcala was under attack. The padres, soldiers and others returned to San Diego . Before they left, Padre Lasuen buried the mission bells. Father Serra returned to uncover the bells and once again begin the mission at San Juan Capistrano.
