San Juan Capistrano Real Estate & Homes for Sale in California
Located just a mile from the ocean midway between Los Angeles and San Diego, San Juan Capistrano is a city steeped in history and scenic beauty. Its heritage can be traced back to the 1700s when Father Junipero Serra established the Mission San Juan, which has become the third largest visitor attraction in Orange County following Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm. Recognized for its beautiful courtyard gardens and legendary "Return of the Swallows" on March 19th of each year, Mission San Juan is also the oldest settlement in Orange County. The historic downtown of San Juan Capistrano is home to the Mission, the historic Capistrano Depot railroad station and the beautiful Los Rios Historic District.
Incorporated in 1961, San Juan is a city of approximately 30,000 that still revolves around the mission and the centrally located business district. San Juan Capistrano is a community still evolving after more than 220 years. Much of its architecture is still influenced by the use of red clay tile roofs and stucco walls, reminiscent of early California design. From multi-acre equestrian estate homes, gated enclaves overlooking a golf course, to reasonably priced condos, San Juan Capistrano has something for everyone.
