MISSION BELL AT SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO
MISSION BELL AT SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO

An Object With A Mission

From San Francisco to San Diego, Fr.Junipero Serra built 21 Spanish missions. These mission bells are historical icons of these expeditions.

If you are like us, curious travelers, we follow Fr. Serra’s Mission trail. Along the Camino Real now known as the highway 101, the Franciscan friars planted 450 of these cast -iron mission bells leading to their Churches.

These objects tell many stories of  how Christianity evolved in the region of  California.  A good resource is the book by  Steven Hackel on Fr. Serra’ s journey,   “Juniperro Serra”.
