I enjoyed this mission much better than the Alamo. Really gives you Sense of how people lived there. The working church is beautiful. The walls are intact and many rooms open and available for viewing. The Gristmill and the aquaducts ate still all working and...More

There is considerable information offered in a variety of tours and exhibits. I did conclude that there is no reason to visit all four missions: one or at most two should be enough for most people unless you are a real afficianado.

Easy to reach from San Antonio this mission is well worth a visit as part of the five in the area including the Alamo of course. It feels very peaceful wandering around and you can imagine it back in the day. It is good to...More

We visited on an off-season weekday, so there weren't many other tourists. Very relaxed self-guided tour. Also a good movie and historical displays in the visitors center. Neighborhood around the site is a mixed bag - wondered if we were in the right place! But...More

Another one of the interesting missions just south of SA city center. We enjoyed visiting, however, keep in mind all of the missions close at 5:00pm.

We came here just out of curiosity but left with a deep appreciation for the hardships and faith of the early Texas settlers. Recommend the free tour to hear all the details.

First time visiting & it was a great experience. I highly recommend watching the movie clip & doing the guided tour afterward. It gave me a much deeper appreciation about the history behind the missions.

Museum, restored mission, and functioning church were beautiful and were well with our time. We particularly enjoyed the tour.

Won't take a long time to visit all 4 of these missions but it was fun to drive (or bike ride if you're so inclined) from each mission to the next.

Enjoyable to visit the intact mission as it was established. The mission church is beautiful. It gives an idea what the Alamo would have been like when it was intact.

It's free to tour the grounds, but they do ask for a donation of $1 to enter the church.
