This is a great drive and tour that is easy to do yourself if you have a car..and it is free. Just start at the top..the closest one to the city and work your way down south along the Mission Trail. Maps an be printed from the webiste or picked up at visitor centers. The first one , technically, is The Alamo, then Mission Concepcion, Mission San Jose (where the visitor center is), Mission San Jaun, and finally Mission Espada.
No mission is the same and each has it's own character, history, church, architectural signifacance, and uniqueness. My favourites were Concepcion, San Juan, and San Jose.
To stroll the grounds of these missions is to walk through 300 years of Texas history..a must do.
