Mission Basilica San Diego de Alcala is the first of the 21-mission system that made its way up and along the Californian coast. The expedition of Franciscan Friars on the Baja mission was led by Father Junipero Serra (a face you become well-accustomed to in San Diego) who established the mission on July 16, 1769. The current structure is the fifth to be built on site having fallen victim to American Indian riots, natural catastrophes, collapse from conversion into a two-level barrack by Mexican artillerymen, and abandonment. Yet in 1931, the mission was rebuilt and stands as it is today.
