  • This is clearly one of the best missions to visit for access...inside and exterior. Well worth the time.  more »
  • Although I had been to San Antonio twice in the past, I never new of the missions and their history. This time, my son and I had the pleasure of walking through this one. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.  more »
  • We were pleasantly surprised to discover that this mission was actively having services when we visited. We were greeted by a very knowledgeable gentleman who explained the mission's history until...  more »

  • Nice mission to visit with good history. My family really liked visiting all the missions of S.A.. It's free for the whole family. I highly recommend touring all the missions on your visit to San Antonio. Its awesome!
  • All the Missions are unique in their own way and great to visit, but we seem to have visited San Juan the most when living in San Antonio. Nice gift shop and a great place to start for information on the others.
  • Very cool to visit at least once in a person's lifetime. The surrounding area was beautiful and it has little stands with facts about the mission posted around the site. If I'm not mistaken this is the only site that never finished original parts of the mission.
  • I loved the old buildings. Sign plates at different locations telling the history of the location. You can go inside the big mission, though actual access inside is fairly small. You can light a battery operated candle inside for a prayer or loved one. Riverwalk behind is shorter than it looks on the map. Nice and shady.
  • Kayaking the Missions. We visited the San Juan Missions this morning to drop off our bike for the kayak pick up point. Took some investigating to find the kayak pick up point from the San Antonio River offshoot (see 1st picture). We did finally find the Blue Cement marker at the pick up point (see 3rd picture) although the hike to the water (2nd picture) and pickup point were a little overgrown. We then drove to Roosevelt Park to start our own Kayak the Missions Tour! Would do it again with a sit on top kayak or sit in kayak only if we had a water splash skirt for it.
