Facts for Renters
- San Juan Capistrano is home to an event known as "The Miracle of the Swallows." A large group of cliff swallows migrates from Argentina to the city on St. Joseph's Day. Many of the nests are in the Great Stone Church, though some of the birds have moved to other buildings due to their nests being removed during rebuilding.
- Junipero Serra founded Mission San Juan Capistrano in 1776. When California came under Mexican rule, the mission was left to become ruins, with the exception of a small area that a community leader occupied. The tiles and wood were taken out by residents to build homes. Renters can visit the ruins to get a glimpse of the community's history.
- The city hosts community events for residents to enjoy. Every week year-round there's a farmers market with fresh, local produce. There are also movie nights in the park that show family friendly films.
