About Mission San Jose y San Miguel de Aguayo

Known as the "Queen of the Missions", this is the largest of the missions and was almost fully restored to its original design in the 1930s by the WPA (Works Projects Administration). Spanish missions were not churches, but communities, with the church the focus. Mission San José shows the visitor how all the missions might have looked over 250 years ago.
The park's visitor center is located adjacent to this mission at 6701 San José Drive, San Antonio, Texas, 78214.
