Prepare to drive. The missions themselves are interesting but the distances are spread out and time consuming. I also found there was a lack of historical information at some of the Missions. San Elizario was my favorite and there was a little museum across the street.

I went to this trail a few weeks ago on a Sunday by myself. It was beautiful and loved all of the architecture! No admission fee.

Having grown up in San Antonio, I'm no stranger to Texas Missions. But I've never been to a Mission during broad daylight when the sanctuary was closed. I'm not sure if they've had problems in the past, but it was sad not to have been able to take a peek inside and had the opportunity to leave a donation. We... More

We may have just been lucky but when we arrived there was a volunteer available that sat with us and gave us a fantastic history of all of the missions in the area. The gift shop is also worth your time to visit and had many unique items we have never seen and yes we purchased some of them as... More

Overall very good because of poor signage on the road (I strayed off the Trail twice), indifferent staff and a confusing map that suggests the three churches are in closer proximity than they are. However it is worth the inconvenience if you are interested in the local history of the Native Americans, Spanish colonialism, Mexican rule and the story of... More

This was a self-guided auto tour- and it was worth the time. The missions were beautiful and the history was very interesting. Follow the brown Mission Trail signs and they will take you to the missions easily. Socorro Mission has up signs that parking is for the church only- go ahead and drive in. There is a casino by them... More

Start in San Elizario and work your way west. Check times and call ahead to make sure the mission churches are open. Some of the missions are not wheelchair accessible. You can get into the building but not down to the altar.

We visited the three Mission churches and loved how rich in history they were. It is a wonderful way to spend the day. The churches are beautiful.
