Mission San Francisco De Asís (Mission Dolores) was founded in 1776 and is the Oldest Surviving Structure in San Francisco. The mission is a small church constructed of adobe with ornately painted wooden ceilings and carved statues of saintly figures. The basilica now stands towering over the mission and was finished in 1918.
Boudin Bakery is a classic San Francisco staple for tourists with freshly baked sourdough bread served everyday. First opened in 1849, it’s the oldest continually operating business in San Francisco. The bread here is made with flour, water, salt, and “mother dough.” This special mother dough is a secret recipe created by Boudin with local ingredients and thrives from the very specific fog-cooled climate in San Francisco. You can visit here for lunch or even take a tour of the factory.
