Missions-San Antonio

Of course, we saw the Alamo. I was kind of disappointed that it was not out in a tumbleweed infested, barren, sandy landscape. It was only a couple of blocks from our hotel in downtown San Antonio.

We also toured Mission San Jose which was farther out of town. This "Queen of the Missions" is a large enclosed complex where the natives could come for protection and live, learn and worship. The grounds are a national park, but the church remains an active center of worship.



Blessed Sacrament Chapel-This was my favorite altar.
Mission Conception was the last mission we visited. All the aged lovely buildings and beautiful history were good for my soul.
