Overview

The San Diego Presidio and San Diego Mission once sat atop rolling hills, where Lieutenant Pedro Fages began his quest to make San Diego the first European settlement on the west coast. Now, more than two centuries later, a paved road leads from the busy streets, just east of San Diego's Old Town, up a hill, between scattered statues, museums, picnic areas, and walking trails. In 1960, San Diego declared the Presidio a historic landmark, and today guests can tour Spanish style museums, learn about the Mormon Battalion that fought in the Mexican-American War, and get a bird's eye view of San Diego Harbor. - Erick Pettersen
