In the museum portion of the mission, it showed how the priests lived back in the 1700’s. This was a depiction of their room with rope beds. Doesn’t look very comfortable does it?
Every year, the swallows leave in October to head south to Argentina for the winter and return every year around March 19. That’s when the miracle of the “Swallows” of Capistrano takes place each year at Mission San Juan Capistrano. You can see some of their mud nests (made from mud and saliva), which are clinging to the outer walls.
Each year, as part of their California History lesson, 4th graders throughout the state study the Missions and their importance in California History. Please check regularly to see other California Kid Bloggers post their virtual tours of the California Missions.
