Mission Dolores
San Francisco

The Misión San Francisco de Asís was founded on 29 June 1776. The settlement was named for St. Francis of Assisi but was also commonly known as “Mission Dolores” owing to the presence of a nearby creek named Arroyo de los Dolores. The mission is the oldest intact building in the City of San Francisco and the only intact Mission Chapel in the chain of 21 established under the direction of Father Junipero Serra. Lunch in a nearby restaurant.
