This was the first of the missions we visited and the only one where we went inside the church which has been completely restored to as close to the original as possible so it's beautifully painted in earth colours of white, tan and terracotta with a balcony at the end, a rotunda in the centre and a couple of small...

Such a cool mission. We were told this mission has more original stonework than any other San Antonio missions. Love that the church is still a functioning church.

It is a stop you must see if you are visiting San Antonio. I would go back again if we ever go back to Texas.
