When in San Antonio, a visit to Mission San Juan is a must. It is the largest of the missions (not including the Alamo). The church is gorgeous and the grounds are beautifully kept. This location is rich in history.

This is a great place to see how things were back in the day. Very hard to understand how people lived there but they didn't know any better. Love looking at the church & how things used to be.

A big open space in the middle encircled by buildings on all sides. There is a museum in one of the buildings with exhibits. At the time of my visit I could not enter the mission church.

It was closed, so I cannot comment on the church from inside. It un-appealing from outside. Note to Bikers, you will share the narrow road with cars from Mission San Juan to Mission Espada "Be careful".
