The front door at the church in the San Jose Mission was the highlight of this place for me. Again, this place is not to be missed! Arches #findingtheuniverse #stunningstructures The San Jose Mission in San Antonio, TX is rich with history and much bigger than the Alamo. It's just outside of downtown and completely worth the drive. It's also a public park, so it's free to check it out. I went there just after sunrise, and much like most locations worthy of taking pictures, the time of day was perfect for lack of people in your shots, and perfect sunlight for those classic silhouette shots. If you're in San Antonio, it's definitely worth the trip to see. Not the most visited or the largest of the missions in San Antonio but in my opinion the most dignified. Simple elegance of the altar at Mission Concepción. Indian Quarters, along the perimeter wall of Mission San Jose, San Antonio, Texas. #texas #sanantonio #spanishmissiontrail The silhouette of the bell tower in the morning sun. Mission San Jose, San Antonio,TX. #texas #Sanantonio #spanishmissiontrail Live Exploring the National Parks! Prie-Dieu at Mission Concepción Walls around the San Jose Mission Church #findingtheuniverse The Mission San Jose. This is part of the San Antonio Mission Trail, which is a collection of historic missions which are well worth a visit. You can either drive it bike the trail (there is a connecting bike trail) and makes for an interesting day out. Mission San José is a historic Catholic mission in San Antonio, Texas, USA. The mission was named in part for the Marquis de San Miguel de Aguayo,José de Azlor y Virto de Vera.
The mission was founded on February 23, 1720
In 1874, San José’s church dome and roof collapsed. In 1928, the church tower collapsed. The Works Progress Administration (WPA) almost fully restored Mission San José to its original design in the 1930s.

It's not all about the Alamo. The iconic River Walk in downtown San Antonio I feel the history. In 1720, Fray Antonio Margil de Jesús founded what became the best known of the Texas Missions, San José y San Miguel de Aguayo. Viewedas a model of Mission organization, Mission San José was a major social center. 
We stopped at two of the four Franciscan Missions in San Antonio. This Mission was started in 1720 just after the Spanish first explored Texas. The Native Americans were given the opportunity to be a part of the settlement and helped build and maintain the many Missions in Texas and North America. One of the missions.
#StunningStructures More then just the Alamo - the San Antonio missions are a beautiful, historical and cultural part of Texas. Now a USNPS site and UNESCO world heritage site. #stunningstructures Mission San Jose, Dan Antonio, TX. The second Mission of the four Missions in the San Antonio area. Mission yoga:-) Wall of the mission One of the missions Beautiful Old Church #findingtheuniverse The River Walk in the King William neighborhood of San Antonio is much more peaceful than the touristy area downtown. A lovely walk among stately old mansions, beautiful trees, and artsy bridges. Stop by the Blue Start complex for a beer afterwards. One of the best sandwiches in town if not the state. Their bread and sauces are made from scratch. The Habanero Turkey Sandwich. Spicy! #FoodieFinds Excellent Mexician Food, this is the Albondigas, meatballs. #FoodieFinds Nice spot in Southtown. Indoor and outdoor dining. The Brisket was amazing and the Jalapeno poppers were very spicy but awesome as well. Green Chile Mac N Cheese was delish! #FoodieFinds  In 2015, UNESCO designated all 5 on the Mission Trail as World Heritage Sites. This mission was completed in 1731. Come in Spring and enjoy the mild weather, clear blue skies and flowers. #StunningStructures #InStone In 2015, UNESCO designated all 5 on the Mission Trail as World Heritage Sites. This mission, San Jose, was completed in 1782 and is the most preserved. Come in Spring and enjoy the mild weather, clear blue skies and flowers. #StunningStructures #InStone On the grounds of the mission! Interesting tree! Mission Concepcion, San Antonio, TX. San Antonio Riverwalk, TX. Consistently voted one of the best Mexican restaurants in town by locals and tourists. One of the best Chile rellenos and chocolate flan ever!
