Referred to as the Mother of the Missions, this is one of the missions you cannot miss. It is amazing to see the work of the Natives.

We enjoyed learning about the history of Texas on our last get away through touring the old missions in the area. We traveled by tour bus throughout the city

This is a beautiful building tucked away in a neighborhood. Definitely worth the effort to find. The church and the surrounding buildings are quite lovely. It does not take long to see the site and I definitely recommend a visit.

From the street this mission doesn't look like much but we enjoyed going through it. There are no tours but the person manning the gift shop was very helpful.
