You can feel the history walking through the San Antonio Missions, and the San José Mission is one of the biggest ones. You'll be moved by the legend of the Rose Window, but mostly, by the famous ruins of the mission.

If possible, take the time to visit the Missions while staying in SA. It's a worthwhile trip that will be memorable. There are buses if you do not have a rental car. Go See!!!

Very well preserved location with an active parish. This is the largest of the missions and my favorite. Been here twice now and always like the historical context and the calm you can experience here. Highly recommended.

Just neat to see mission living preserved from 300 years ago they still have an operating Parish at the church! Well worth it to visit.

Yes. The missions Mission San José, Mission Concepción, Mission San Juan Capistrano, Mission Espada are in the National Park. Mission San Antonio de Valero "The Alamo" is part of the World Heritage but I don't think it is... More
