The San Antonio Missions National Historical Park is comprised of five missions. The most famous is the Mission San Antonio de Valero (the Alamo). It is not included in this portfolio as the date we visited was during Fiesta and it was surrounded by tourists and scaffolding.

The other four missions are Mission Concepcion, Mission San Juan Capistrano, Mission San Jose and Mission Espada. This gallery highlights images from these four sites. All are unique and stand alone.

Our suggestion if you plan to visit the National Park is to go to the Alamo. Pick up VIVA Bus #40 for $2.75 per person. This bus runs only to the Missions and makes it so easy to take your time, hop on, then hop off at each location. Better than fighting traffic along the way. If you drive, it appeared there was ample parking at each location. Take this tour in the spring and fall to avoid heat as you are walking a lot with little shade.

This National Park is well worth your time and highly recommended.
