We didn't stay long because of the warning about Red Ants and how they bite and along the mission. The mission was pretty inside.

I was very interested to see the mission and was not disappointed! Better to go on a cool day, as it gets pretty hot there. Check the weather before visiting. A must-see for Texas history buffs.

This mission is smaller than some of the others in the area (like San Jose), and right off of a main road. With parking right in front, it makes it an easy stop to get some great info on historical settlement of Texas.
