Mission Tour

We did take the time to stop at each of the missions on the tour. The restoration project at the san Jose mission was educational, the architecture at the mission Espada was enchanting.

Remember the Alamo

What would a trip to San Antonio be without a trip to the Alamo? It is such a contrast to the other missions, which are quiet and not surrounded by tall buildings.

    Next time I go to San Antonio I will have to check out the missions. It is kind of strange to find the Alamo in the middle of those high rises.

    Fascinating info Christine. Have known about the Alamo since I saw that movie as a youngster, but didn't know anything about these others so thanks for informing & enlightening me.
