Mission San Jose

This beautiful, historic Mission was founded in 1720, and named at the time for Saint Joseph and the Marqués de San Miguel de Aguayo, the governor of the Province of Coahuila and Texas.

Sadly, the Mission experienced a long period of gradual decline after the 1833 Mexican secularization act.

Many of the exquisite original structures have since been reconstructed and restored over the years, which you can learn all about in a short documentary before starting your walk through its peaceful grounds.

There is free access to the Mission together with a lovely gift shop.
