Mission San Luis Rey
4050 Mission Avenue, Oceanside, CA 92057
Mission San Luis Rey de Francia was founded on June 13, 1798 in coastal Las Californias, in the present day U.S. city of Oceanside in California. The local Quechnajuichom Native American tribe became known as the Luiseño ‘Mission Indians’, after the Mission’s ‘Luis’. The current church, built in 1811, is the third church on this location. It is a National Historic Landmark for its pristine example of a Spanish Mission Church complex.
