Tips for Mission San José & Visitor Center
Beautiful mission. One of my favorites of the 5 missions in San Antonio.

Established in 1720, it became known as the "Queen of the Missions" for its grand design of stone walls, bastions and magnificent church.

San Jose is the largest of the five San Antonio missions. Take a tour, then film a one minute video about San Jose. Post your video to YouTube and see who can get the most views! –Race to the Alamo
- Visit San Antonio
The inside of the church is breathtaking!!!!!
- Desarae Wisnoski
Known as the "Queen of the Missions", this is the largest of the missions and was almost fully restored to its original design in the 1930s

Amazing Mariachi mass. The acoustics carry so much sound

Disrespectful people walking their dogs and pooping in front of the mission. Can't clean up after the dog. They just leave it there

A lovely piece of history. We got a taxi to it and then walked back into town via Mission Concepción - 3 hours at a slow pace.
