If you don't like going to old churches don't go. I thought that it wasn't the best of the four missions and if you want to simply hit the highlights, good isn't one I would go to.

One of six former Spanish missions established in San Antonio. The San Antonio missions are both a National Park and a World Heritage Site. Don't miss it to learn more about the Spanish heritage!

This site is awesome with the history that surrounds it. The chapel, the grounds, the area that the people lived in and the soldiers quarters. It takes hours to really view and appreciate the entire sight.

Gosh I could've stayed on these grounds for hours! Large (and likely old) shade trees cast a late afternoon shadow on the mission grounds and shaded us from the sun. The grounds are well-kept and the church is beautiful!

This was our second stop on the mission trail. The grounds are beautiful but, we got a disappointment when we found out the church was closed. Seems they had a leak in the roof and had to close it up to the public so no one would get hurt. The outside of the church was a beautiful white

Even if you grew up in California and are surrounded with Missions the Missions in San Antonio offer a different look at that time. They are beautiful and well worth the time to travel to each.
