I visited this mission for the first time with my family from Maine. We were impressed by the size of this mission and how well it had been preserved. You can't beat the price...free.

Another of the great old Missions along the Mission Trail. This was probably the least visited, but probably my favorite. The whitewashed church was very striking in the sunlight and you could hear the nearby river - just a very peaceful area.

All of the missions in SAN Antonio are a must see. This includes the Alamo. Each mission has its own unique charm.

Historical and interesting. We were there on a sunny day with right temperatures. We were able to walk around and listen to our phone for information on each of the missions.

All I've got to add to everything else everyone else has placed on here is that this place is pet-friendly.

This was interesting, there was some renovation work going on the grounds. Mostly a historical visit.

We loved touring the missions. It was easy. A marked trail to drive. Plenty of parking. Easy to get to. They are all beautiful and different. Worth the time to go. A little slice of history.

Love all the missions--this one too! They are all unique and very interesting--don't miss! The one with the granary (don't recall which one this is) doesn't have the granary working--not sure what the problem is.

The Missions in San Antonio are a must. There are several Missions in San Antonio and it is recommended to see them all. The Alamo is one of them.

Very peaceful area with original structures or their remains. Easy to visualize a farming communal village with the mission having centrality in the lives of the people. Loved the rock remains and information about each area. There are working restrooms in a little building along the walking path.
