The San Antonio Missions Trail is both informative and historically pleasing. The missions are located as follows: Mission Concepción, Mission San Jose, Mission San Juan, and Mission Espada. The Espada Aqueduct, also part of the Park, is due east of Mission San Juan, across the...More

We loved touring the four missions along the Mission Trail more so than the Alamo. You can't take pics inside the Alamo, but you can take pics at all the other missions. The park rangers were very informative; nice tours available if you have time.

According to what I read, this was the best preserved interior of all the missions. You could actually see what the inhabitants of that time would of seen. It was a great treat and a must if you are checking out the missions.

We loved visiting the Missions and learning more history that each one told. Walking through them brought feelings of gratitude for those who experienced what they did here.

The second mission on the mission trail is the best. Can't remember the name of it but not Mission Conception. The mission has much more to visit. We had a ranger giving a tour so it was very interesting.

We enjoyed touring the Missions, and it wasn't too far away from downtown San Antonio. The mission offered insight into how people lived and worshiped back in the day.

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.

I would schedule at least half a day for the four missions (i.e. excluding the Alamo). That will give you about 45 minutes to walk around and explore each mission with 15 minutes travel time between them (which should be... More
