This was not in the best of neighborhoods and the Visitor's Center was not very receptive. I think the Spanish had a better outreach program.

We rode the mission road and visited all of the historical missions. What a day--just wonderful. I highly recommend taking the time to do this. Begin with San Juan and finish up at The Alamo--once there you can enjoy the famous river walk and city center. It can all be done in one day without any trouble. Beautiful architecture, beautiful...

The Mission in San Antonio are part of the Spanish "Royal Road." They are spaced on day's walk from each other for that purpose. All of the Mission are stunning, but my favorite is 'Concepcion.'

A really enjoyable visit. The weather was cold but our guide made up for it. She was informative pleasant and interesting. The tour took 40 minutes and the history of the missions is very interesting.

It was cold, windy, and rainy the Saturday we visited the missions, but we couldn't visit another day. It was my 3rd time to visit the missions, my granddaughter's 2nd. I love the Spanish missions; they're quiet, well maintained, and beautiful. The missions are each different from the other. Mission San Jose is the largest and best restored, looking much... More

Worked our way south to north, and the intensity and importance grew to a crescendo with The Alamo. Wonderful look at the history of our country.

The 4 Missions are just beautiful and full of history..plus The Alamo making it the 5th Mission. They were featured in a recent article in Texas Highways Magazine and best way to see all of them is either driving with a GPS map or taking a tour from The Alamo in downtown San Antonio.
