Pretty cool.

This wasn't my favorite mission to visit, but it was still worth visiting. Very interesting inside and out.

Did the good ole Missions Tour! This one is cool, but it might be my least favorite in comparison w/ the other ones. Still is a Texas & World Heritage Historical Landmark that should be visited and respected.

Won't spend much time here. No tour so you just walk through it. Very similar to all the other missions. Very quiet...buildings in ruins except church.

We traveled to see several mission on "the trail". This was easy to find if you can see the directional signs. The ruins are amazing, part of the Mission has been rebuilt and is stark white, loosing the time frame feel. The grounds were covered in cactus. Simple and pure beauty.

This was the fourth (last) mission stop heading south from downtown San Antonio. It was easy find and the parking lot is ample, even for busy times. There is no entrance fee for the mission and it is not near as busy due to the fact public transportation doesn't service the 2 missions to the south. The grounds are large... More

It was so neat to see they had small rooms open to see where people lived! Oh how could we ever think we have it bad in this day and age?! The church was closed due... More

This well persevered site shows how life was back in the day. This place has the oldest grain mill in Texas. Admission is free, grounds are kept tidy.
