Owner description: Founded in 1720, this Spanish frontier mission, the largest of the five San Antonio missions, is best known for its rose window. On Sundays, this Texas and U.S. National historic site offers a mariachi mass.

The history behind the missions is so interesting, and this mission was so beautiful and the history so well presented. Very worthwhile visit. We also went to the other three missions, San Juan, Concepcion and Espada. Each unique and uplifting in their own way. Regarding the availability of food, stroller parking etc, below. They probably had it but I did not pay attention to that.

Our visit to Mission San Jose was very interesting. The apartments provided by the mission for native Americans are interesting. The granary can be viewed along with a diorama in it, as well as a grain mill outside the walls. The church still used and can be toured in not in use for its primary purpose, i.e. funerals, weddings, services.

We took the guided tour with the ranger and found in very interesting. As a result we visited some of the other missions on the mission trail. Each one highlights a different aspect of mission life in Texas.

National Park guide Tatum Meeks did a great job of bringing the site alive, and with explaining so much more about the motivations of the Spanish settlers.

Great video to give you the history of the Mission. Beautiful theater! Saw a cardinal in the tree which was amazing since we don't have them at home! Great tour guides! Lots of walking if you're up to it!
