We didn't do all the missions but this one definitely was the best. Get there with an uber from downtown or from any of the other missions. It's not as crowded as mission San Jose but I'd advise to go to San Jose first to...More

The architecture, history, and the frescoes are absolutely wonderful. I am moved each time I visit. The prayer garden tucked off to the side is a peaceful place to pray, or just enjoy the tranquility of nature.

Was here while mass was being celebrated. Like the other missions it cannot hold many people. Still worth the visit.

Spanish heritage in Texas. It was a great walk down the River Walk. The interior has been restored. The chapel is beautiful and fully functional. Outside is magestic. Real history here and well explained with guides describing everything. Nice restrooms outside too.

We didn't stay long because of the warning about Red Ants and how they bite and along the mission. The mission was pretty inside.

This mission has very interesting architecture. Plus, the onsite ranger was very helpful and knowledgeable.

I was very interested to see the mission and was not disappointed! Better to go on a cool day, as it gets pretty hot there. Check the weather before visiting. A must-see for Texas history buffs.

This is by far the most elaborate of the missions. We sat in the garden area and just observed the beauty before entering. Also encountered our first common ravens.

I recommend the movie at the visitors center and a guided tour if you really want to learn the particulars. I think $30 would be worth it for the multiple sites.

At this time it's completely open. As the Riverwalk is extended, that may change
