Another beautiful old mission along the San Antonio River. You can imagine its original size by the ruins of the walls surrounding the plaza. As with the other four missions, the grounds are kept in beautiful condition and it was a pleasure to walk there.

This one of the four missions we visited. Less interesting comparing with other three. Also some work is going on repairing old buildings. The main building is closed. Just few minutes to brows on the yard and take few photos. Free to visit.

This was our least favorite mission. The white adobe church just didn’t feel like it fit the era. The grounds are small and some areas were being repaired. Still a must if you are exploring all the San Antonio missions.

Mission San Juan is very scenic. The Mission is white and still has a working bell tower. It stands out against the ruins of this compound. Walk around the entire Mission, not as large as San Jose, yet good exercise as you do. There is...More

I never knew anything about the Franciscan Missions until I went to see them in San Antonio. They opened my mind to the reason that the Franciscan Fathers were so successful in converting the native people.

Gorgeous. See them all. Start at the visitor center. Go from there. You will not regret seeing any of them!

Of the five surviving San Antonio missions (including the Alamo) this is probably the least interesting. The main point of interest is the 'aqueducts' in this area and even here the best example isn't at this mission but is on the road to Mission Espada....More

This is a much smaller mission. Its tucked away in a housing area. It has two very interesting tree growths. In the information area is an individual who shows you how to spin thread next to a loom. The active portion is very pretty, with...More
