A must visit for the newly selected heritage site(s). I've always loved visiting the SA Missions now I want to support them even more. Take a ride along the mission river reach and stop by a historic mission. Also attend a Sunday mass.

This mission is a beautiful place to visit. It has been restored to show what it was like back when people lived there.

Even though it's old the white paint makes it look more modern. There is not much on this site: no visitors center, no information office, etc. but also has a lit of history.

Although this one wasn't my favorite it is still beautiful and loaded with history. There is actually a burial grounds where some of the indigenous people who were at the mission are buried. Go during the week if possible, the crowd is pretty much nonexistent.

This mission is an older looking mission and also more antique then the other 3 or 4 missions there this would be a great place to stop and take some quick photos and walk around. Always, be safe, travel, and have fun.

All the missions are great, lots of history leading to the Alamo battle. Some of the missions have church services on Sundays. Photo opportunities at all of them.

This is a smaller mission at least for what remains. Is outside the old downtown area by a few miles surrounded by homes. This is a less traveled mission by visitors because you can only get there by car but its only about 10-15 minutes from the Alamo

It is always a treat to walk through the ruins of this mission on the Mission Trail in San Antonio. As you visit, let your imagination reconstruct what it would have been like to live here in the old days. Very Inspirational!
