San Juan Bautista State Historic Park is located in San Juan Bautista, California. San Juan Bautista is an hour south of San Jose near US 101. There are really two things to see - The State Historic Park and the Mission. The park is owned and operated by the State of California. The Mission is still a functioning Catholic church.
