Take the tour of all the missions!

This is my favorite of the five missions after the Alamo. The history of the missions is very interesting.

We walked around for about an hour. The sites were great, beautiful photo opportunity and the history was wonderful. Our kid really enjoyed pretending he was looking for friends

We did a trolley tour of all the missions. This was my favorite one. Beautiful architecture, struggling to survive the test of time. It was fun exploring the grounds. A great place to take photos and soak up some history.

no offense to the Alamo, but this mission is in much better shape and still maintains a lot of the other building and the courtyard to get a better feel of how life was in the 1800's. The area around the Mission is a bit troubled but no one bothers the mission itself or any of its patrons.

A lovely place to visit - it costs nothing and you just walk around and learn about who was there before you. Very cool place.

This is the best of the four missions in the national park and has a beautiful church. It also has frescoes still on the wall and this is the only mission, other than the visitor center, that has the park passport stamp.

I enjoyed the history and walking around the grounds and inside the buildings. I have always heard about the Almo and been there many times, which I've enjoyed. But, I never knew these other missions existed nearby and I enjoyed them even more.

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!

Of all the missions in the San Antonio Missions National Historic Site, I felt this was the most authentic. The ranger was great and gave us interesting information and the displays and grounds were in top shape.

Well worth a stop. We saw it as part of a mission tour. The grounds and architecture are worth taking your time at.
