Amara's visit to Mission San Juan Bautista

Amara at Mission San Juan BautistaIt is that time of year when the 4th graders study the California missions and create a Mission Project of one of the 21 missions.

Amara chose Mission San Juan Bautista since it was within driving distance for a visit and because she wanted to create a video of our visit to Mission San Juan Bautista.

Interesting facts about the Mission:
  • Largest of the 21 California Missions.
  • Its church is the largest in the mission chain and is the only with a main aisle and two naves.
  • Was used as the setting for Alfred Hitchcock's movie "Vertigo" starring Jimmy Stewart and Kim Novak.
