Serra Chapel (2005)

This chapel at Mission San Juan Capistrano is the only remaining building where Father Junípero Serra, the founder of nine California missions, is known to have celebrated Mass. The baroque-era retablo from Barcelona is not the chapel’s original altarpiece. Made of cherry wood covered with gold leaf, it is believed to be over a century older than the Mission.
