A complement to the Alamo

At the Missions you can have an idea of how the Alamo was before the siege/war. In the first two they still serve as churches.

A nice break from the hustle and bustle of the city. The properties are scattered a few miles apart. Visiting all of them are each a unique and peaceful experience. Great photo opportunities.

This was well worth the time to visit each and every site- I loved to see the scale of the original grounds. This was especially helpful to see before seeing the Alamo because it helps to visualize what was there at the time of the battle.

If you enjoy history you will enjoy how the City of San Antonio started. The Catholic missions were set up to bring Christ to the natives.

Learn about the history of the missions. See the buildings, each offering a unique story for the traveller to explore. Educational and inspiring. Great photo opportunities too.

The national park itself is excellent, the visitor center has an informative video and museum. The missions are beautifully restored and I would highly recommend every one of these. However, keep in mind that each mission is operated by the parish, so while the missions might be open every day, the stores and other facilities may not be. The best... More
