The city of San Juan Capistrano started around the Mission San Juan Capistrano, which was founded in 1776. San Juan Capistrano is a city of history. It is home to the oldest residential neighborhood in California, Los Rios, with buildings dating back to 1794. The Mission’s Serra Chapel is the oldest in-use building in the state, and California’s first vineyard and winery were near the Mission. The current population of 36,000 people lives in an area of approximately 14.5 square miles. The city’s most famous residents are the swallows that migrate north from Argentina and arrive in San Juan Capistrano around March 19th each year, living at the Mission until around October 23rd when they return to Argentina.
