Trip Planner:   USA  /  Texas  /  San Antonio  /  Mission San Jose

Mission San Jose, San Antonio

Founded in 1720, Mission San Jose is the largest of the missions in Texas and offers visitors a glimpse into the area's Spanish community life more than 250 years ago. This Catholic mission was rebuilt in limestone in 1768 and is dubbed Queen of the Missions because of its relative size compared to other nearby missions. A mission was not a church, but rather a Spanish community center with a religious focus. This particular mission underwent restoration in the 1930s and is most well-known for its detailed rose window.
