Search San Antonio Texas

Located 6.2 miles south on US 281, San Jose y San Miguel de Aquayo Mission, known as the "Queen of Missions" was founded in 1720. The entire mission compound, including the outer wall with American Indian dwellings, granary and workshops, has been restored to the way it looked in the days of the conquistadores, or Spanish conquerers. A 1790 flour mill stands outside the north wall. The domed church has a rich facade, and on its south side is one if the finest examples of stone carving in America, known as the Rosa Window.
