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.

Beautiful church to visit. A ways out of town, so easy to get to with the tour. You can drive to it from downtown.

We were pleasantly surprised and interested to find out that mass is still held in the church. We did the walk from downtown and it's not necessarily worth it, as once you are out of town there is nothing along the river walk. If you want just a good workout or bike ride go for it! We took the city... More

Great way to spend a part of the day in San Antonio. All of the churches are beautiful. Many markers explaining their role in history. Kind of an iffy neighborhood but well worth a visit.

Many of the missions have been rebuilt or had new roves put on. Not this one. It is as complete as it could have been just about. Don't miss the murals in the granary.

Amazing historical site and great for a short visit. Took the tour bus and got off here. Well worth it. Learned quite a bit about life in the mission and beautiful buildings. Had 4 children along who enjoyed it for a little while but more of an adult destination.
