San Antonio is home to 5 beautiful frontier missions. These missions were originally designed by religious orders bringing Christianity to the native people of the area. While they served as churches, they also served as housing and forts. While we always seem to remember the Alamo, we sometimes neglect the 4 other missions that are just as beautiful and historic. Located in the Missions National Historic Park visitors can walk through the incredible buildings. My favorite was the Mission San Jose. I just couldn’t get enough of the stone archways and the ornate decorative doors.
