Ghost sightings in San Juan? Maybe so. Mission San Juan Capistrano has always been a place of legend and folklore.
Now, the birthplace of Orange County has granted the SyFy Channel’s “Ghost Hunters” crew limited access to investigate public claims of paranormal, it was recently announced.
The San Juan Capistrano community’s pleas for an investigation were heard, and the show was first aired on Wednesday, Jan 23 on the SyFy Channel.
The show will air numerous times in the coming weeks. Check local listings for dates and times.
The “Ghost Hunters” crew focused on claims of sightings of Magdalena, a young woman who perished while in the Great Stone Church during the 1812 earthquake.
Another claim investigated by the crew involved sightings of a faceless monk roaming the halls of the Mission.
In order to accommodate increased demand of visitor tours, the Mission will be adding an evening, docent-guided tour, “Evening Legends and Folklore” of the Mission.
