San Antonio Missions National Historical Park may be arranged differently than other parks you have visited. This park has four distinct visitor areas, each between 2-3 miles from the previous one. Starting 3 miles south of downtown San Antonio is Mission Concepción. Another 2½ miles is Mission San José, the location of the park's Visitor Center. Three miles beyond Mission San José is Mission San Juan and Spanish colonial demonstration farm. The last and farthest south is Mission Espada.

Park Passport Stamps

Visitors earn two cancellation stamps when visiting San Antonio Missions. One is for the park, and the other is for El Camino Real de los Tejas National Historic Trail on which all the missions are located. All the missions carry these two stamps. Our cancellation stamps are not available by mail.

Additionally, each mission carries its own decorative stamp, as shown below. The Visitor Center has all four of the decorative mission stamps.

Four Passport to Your Parks stamps are available.
