PhotoPOSTcard: Inside San Antonio’s Mission San Jose

Founded in 1720, San Antonio’s Mission San Jose was the largest of the missions in the area. The current building was built in 1768 from local limestone, and while the exterior my show signs of its venerable age, Mission San Jose’s interior is clearly a beautifully maintained space used for regular worship.

Thanks for visiting.

PhotoPOSTcard: Reflecting on Mission San Juan Capistrano

Mission San Juan Capistrano is one of four historic mission complexes that are part of San Antonio’s Missions National Historic Park. The park preserves and educates about the history associated with these missions. But unlike other historical sites, the churches that make up the mission complexes are still very much in use, providing regular services to the local parishioners.

Thanks for visiting
