This Mission is really small and all locked up. We were disappointed. You just walk up and look at the outside of this small Mission and then walk back to your car. It has free parking and no restrooms.

This is the 3rd mission I've visited in San Antonio, and in comparison, it was pretty lackluster. Everything was closed off. We didn't get to look inside the chapel. The bright part was the short trails that led to the San An river. The bathrooms...More

When in San Antonio, a visit to Mission San Juan is a must. It is the largest of the missions (not including the Alamo). The church is gorgeous and the grounds are beautifully kept. This location is rich in history.
