Mission San Jose de Guadalupe

HE fourteenth Mission, founded in 1797. Only a little of the structure now remains but this little is available to sightseers in the Santa Clara Valley not far from the City of San Jose. It was here that the renowned Concepcion Arguello spent the last years of her life among the Dominican Sisters whose community she joined when they came to California. Her life and love story forms the theme of John Steven McGroarty's Play "La Golondrina" (The Swallow) which is presented for a short season each year in the Mission Playhouse at San Gabriel.
