There was a mass going on when we visited but the grounds are beautiful and expansive. You can see how people lived long ago. Overall a nice place to see.

We made the Mission Tour around San Antonio. The Mission San Jose was fantastic. There was a video shown that is worth seeing. The church is fabulous. Very peaceful area and a must see.

We did all the missions at the same day and this was the Mission that had less left to see. But still it's worth a visit. It's interesting to see them all.
