Misión San Francisco de
and Mission Dolores Basilica
Welcome to Mission Dolores Parish
Mission Dolores has always had a central place in the religious, civic, and cultural life of San Francisco. Misión San Francisco de Asís was founded June 29, 1776, under the direction of Father Junipero Serra and is both the oldest original intact Mission in California and the oldest building in San Francisco. Today, the Mission Dolores Parish comprises both the Basilica and the Old Mission.
to its origins, the Basilica Parish of Mission Dolores reflects the remarkable diversity and vibrancy of modern San
Francisco. Located at the crossroads of the City's Mission District, Castro
District, the Lower Haight, Noe Valley, and Upper Market Street
neighborhoods, Mission Dolores parishioners come
from an enormous array of cultures, places, and backgrounds to worship
The Old Mission's religious, historic, and architectural significance makes it a unique and memorable destination for visitors to San Francisco. We welcome all to come visit the birthplace of San Francisco. For Old Mission visitor information, please click here.
