Most notable throughout its history as the final destination for the migration of the famous cliff swallows, San Juan Capistrano is a small city that was built up around the original Mission San Juan Capistrano. Many of the city's dwellings reflect that same Spanish mission architectural style. The city, which was incorporated in 1961, is located in the southern part of Orange County. According to the latest available figures, the population is just over 34,000 and growing; its sister city is Capestrano, Italy, the hometown of the city's namesake, Giovanni da Capistrano.

It also contains the state's oldest residential neighborhood, Los Rios, and the oldest continuously used building, the old mission's Serra Chapel. 

The citizens have fought hard to put into place measures that protect the heritage and ambiance of San Juan Capistrano, including the adoption in the early 1970s of a General Plan to preserve the historic areas and open spaces against the explosive growth and development of the region. Due to these initiatives, it's one of the few cities in the area that has retained it's central character and sleepy, agricultural nature. About 40 percent of the area is protected from development, and the city actively acquires undeveloped land around its perimeter to safeguard the natural landscaping and trails that define the area.
