Additional Details:
Founded in California 1769. In the patio of the Mission San Diego de Alcala grow trees planted by the Padres over 150 years ago. The present mission was built in 1776, after the Indian insurrection in which Padre Jayme (California's martyr priest) was slain, and the buildings destroyed. The base of the belfry and the bells are of the original mission, as are the church records in Padre Serra's own handwriting.
