My parents came out from Cali. We all truly enjoyed coming here. We love historical places in general. We captured some real great pictures. Just simply a beautiful Mission to see.

This is a beautiful area and definitely worth a trip to see. Go when the weather is nice! Which unfortunately is usually never in the summer!

Do not leave this out of your Go To List. This is top notch history and you should visit this mission before going to the Alamo. Take a bus in front of the Alamo to get here.

It is quite a long walk. Consider the missions were originally little villages so they were spread at a distance on the San Antonio river for transportation and communication.

By the way, many of the park maps are wrong--you can't rely on GPS--streets are under construction in some places.
