This mission has a very nice hiking trail behind it that you should take. If you want, it will take you all the way down to the next mission which is not accessible on the public transportation Mission Bus. The Mission itself was well preserved and provided much history.

This is a good one to start off with if you are doing the trail. I wouldn't go on a hot day unless you have lots of water with you as there is little shade and the store closes early.

The 4th stop on the Mission Trail and the one to me , that looked like a real Spanish Mission ! The brilliant white stucco finish set the scene & the understated interior was cool and inviting. Another 285 yr old survivor and we had the place to ourselves. Nice touch out the front with the cactus garden & cross... More

This is mission on the San Antonio missions trail. Beautiful chapel. Well maintained grounds. A very peaceful place. If you enjoy visiting historic sites you will love visiting all the missions in the San Antonio area.

I visited this mission for the first time with my family from Maine. We were impressed by the size of this mission and how well it had been preserved. You can't beat the price...free.

Another of the great old Missions along the Mission Trail. This was probably the least visited, but probably my favorite. The whitewashed church was very striking in the sunlight and you could hear the nearby river - just a very peaceful area.

All of the missions in SAN Antonio are a must see. This includes the Alamo. Each mission has its own unique charm.

Historical and interesting. We were there on a sunny day with right temperatures. We were able to walk around and listen to our phone for information on each of the missions.

All I've got to add to everything else everyone else has placed on here is that this place is pet-friendly.
