Much of the mission was in ruins and it was hard to imagine. Next time, I would skip it. Mission Concepcion and Mission San Jose were much better to see and experience.

After The Alamo, the missions are most significant San Antonio attraction. Very moving. My wife and I have taken time to visit all of them. Schedule at least one full day.

Mission Trail with the missions of San Antonio are worth the visit. All located here in 1791 and are quite interesting.

We went there just to say we’d gone. It’s strikingly different from the other missions—the white one. Other than that it’s surrounded by badly recreated grounds. You walk a rectangle with very few places to interact. Meh.
