San Antonio Missions
We took a day to visit three of the five missions in San Antonio. While the Alamo is one of the five, it is not part of the National Historical Park. The four missions part of the park are
- Mission Concepcion
- Mission San Jose
- Mission Espada
- Mission San Juan Capistrano
We visited Mission Concepcion and San Jose. There are all located with a few miles of each other. Mission San Jose was the most impressive, mainly because of its size.

Beautiful missions. They look ancient and more European than American. The long corridor with curved archways reminds me of Guell Park in Barcelona, Spain. I’m guessing those missions are not occupied by any religious order but are run as historic sites. You’re seeing a lot of early American history………interesting. Kath
Good to hear from you again.
Beautiful buildings. You got some really nice photos too, with a lot of detail and shadows that create a strong sense of place. Looks like a place I’d like to visit.
What do you think Murray would say?
