Family pets are welcome on the grounds of the four missions, as long as they are on a leash or being carried. They will not be allowed into park buildings or the churches.
Please police your animals and deposit waste in a trashcan.
To protect the park's wildlife, please do not bring leashed pets on the Yanaguana Nature trail at Mission San Juan.
WARNING: Do not leave animals unattended in your vehicle. They can die within 20 minutes in South Texas, where temperatures can reach 80 degrees by 9:00 a.m.
Did You Know?
San José's grist mill in San Antonio Missions National Historical Park never ground corn, only wheat? The mill was built late in the mission period; by then the mission Indians had acquired a taste for wheat-based foods. Today the mill is mostly a reproduction, and is in operation five days a week.
