San Antonio Missions National Historical Park
PreviousSide view of Mission San JuanNext

Four Spanish missions from the 18th century are protected as San Antonio Missions National Historical Park, which also contains woodland, parkland and trails along a ten mile section of the San Antonio River, south of the city center. Although entirely surrounded by the suburbs, the missions retain their sizeable gardens, and their tranquil atmosphere. A fifth mission (The Alamo) is close by, though not part of the park. The southernmost four missions are still used for regular church services.
