Very disappointed with this historical site. Thought it would be more like My Old Kentucky Home or other places in our history. Rooms in fort where just empty, plain stone rooms. Did have a building with more items, pictures & signs telling about them. Located...More

Growing up in Texas, we all know about the Alamo, and how it began life as a mission before becoming a shrine to Texas liberty. I had no idea that there were four more missions in San Antonio, all beautifully restored, and still functioning as...More

We only went to two missions. We enjoyed the working church and grounds. We also enjoyed the information at the visitor center. There is off street parking here.

The hop on bus doesn’t go to these places, but for only 2.75 you can ride city bus 40 to go to all of them. Such a neat opportunity to get a glimpse into the pat.

Skip the Alamo and take the self guided tour of the 4 other Spanish missions. These are all in a 'country' setting so you get a much better feel for the history. And best of all - they are FREE.

Visiting San Antonio offers the unique opportunity to visit both a National Historical Park and a United Nations World Heritage Site at the same time. You can simply step back into time and experience Spanish colonial and church history as you explore the missions. You...More

I would go to Mission Espade Because it is a rural setting and will give you a closer approximation of what the missions may have looked like before being engulfed by the City. Slightly south of the mission before you cross... More
