The Mission Trail is a great walking, biking or driving experience. Explore centuries of the history and culture when you visit the five missions of San Antonio: Mission San Antonio de Valero or more commonly known as the Alamo, Mission Concepción, Mission San José, Mission San Juan Capistrano and Mission San Francisco de la Espada. There is no admission fee at any of the missions, however, donations are accepted. The San Antonio Mission Trail, which begins at the Alamo, winds southward along a nine-mile stretch of the San Antonio River.
San Antonio's historic missions are an official UNESCO World Heritage site.
