Known as the Mother of the Missions, Mission San Diego de Alcala was
founded July 16, 1769, by Father Junipero Serra. It was the first of the 21

For 12 years after secularization, the mission was used by the U.S. Army
to stable horses. Restoration began in 1931. Within ten years the mission again
became an active parish and in 1976 was designated a Minor Basilica by Pope
Paul VI.
