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.

Have taken the Mission Trail a few times when entertaining house guests. This last trip was enjoyable as usual. Always amazed at the condition of this mission, What a beautiful alter.

This is the most beautiful of the Missions, though not the biggest or most geared to educating tourists. It is a wonderful example of a mission church, though, and worth a stop even if you just admire it from the outside.

This a very beautiful mission and architecture to view and learn more of the history of the area. It is a short driving distance from the Alamo. We took a trolley tour where this is one of the major stops.

We visited this mission as part of the trolley tour. We got off the trolley walked towards the visitors center and was greeted by a wonderful docent named Bill. We essentially had a private tour! The mission was beautiful and peaceful. Bill really made it come alive with his extensive knowledge and obvious love of history. My son had many... More

Is still a parish church so Sunday services; nice to see it still in use. Lovely friendly members, great acoustics for singing. Lovely grounds and of course the history. Well maintained.

The guide asked us to go on a tour. We agreed and the weather cooperated! There are shade areas so I would say it would be fine if really hot! We toured the church and learned more with wonderful guide than we would alone! He even played a little flute..really magical experience!
