A far more compact area than Mission San Jose and with a lot more soul. This mission has more a personal feel about it and there are a couple of places to stop and reflect. The 'tourist office' was shut for renovations when we where there so the sense of commercialism experienced at San Jose wasn't evident

A must see, lovely restoration and preservation. Wall art is well preserved and the most abundant of any of the missions. Smaller then San Jaun, but worth the trip a must see.

Visited several missions. This was one of our favorites. Worthwhile to visit. We were not allowed inside (it is an active congregation) but lots to explore outside.

It's wonderful these missions were preserved to give a good insight into lives at that time. This is better preserved with some wall paintings. Extensive grounds ith much to see in the side rooms.

A massive mission church is basically all that is left of what once was a self contained community. The church is indeed a sight to behold and I strongly recommend entering to see some of the remaining wall paintings inside. This is the closest of the missions to downtown San Antonio but by all means if you come this far... More

The day we visited the information centre was closed for renovations but we had access to the church and other buildings. Well documented history of the site on display boards.

Each mission is slightly different and the history varies slightly. Gave a good overview of what life was like back then.

Great epitaph to the priests and parishioners of the early Spanish missions. They placed the missions a day's ride apart to give shelter to travellers. Their size and their current condition gives credit to the builders three hundred years ago.

This is a must see if in San Antonio and love history. Very well preserved functioning mission with church services. Church sanctuary is air conditioned. Free admission. Start with this mission if touring them all because the park rangers give tours that are helpful with understanding of symbols, etc. that is beneficial at other missions and makes the experience more...

This was the last stop on our mission tour, and was just perfect. It wasn't crowded, but there's not much parking, so the parking lot felt crowded. It was beautiful and serene and seemed like it was right in the middle of town! Like a little quiet place smack dab in the middle of businesses and houses! Okay, maybe not... More
