One Park. Four Missions.

San Antonio Missions National Historical Park embodies nearly 300 years of rich history and culture. Within the park grounds, four separate mission sites offer recreation opporunities for the whole family. Step back in time while never leaving the city at Mission San José, Mission Concepción, Mission San Juan, and Mission Espada and their associated irrigation systems.

All four of the mission sites at San Antonio Missions National Historical Park also still contain active catholic parishes. The churches hold regular services in these historic buildings. They are open to park visitors during park hours, except for during special services, such as weddings and funerals.

Whether you plan to visit just one mission or all four, we hope this information will help you plan your adventure.
