Back again for another of the lovely San Antonio Missions! Today we’re visiting our third stop – and by far the most complete – Mission San Jose.
This mission still has the complete wall around the area – and the walls are more than just a wall – it’s more like a square of dwellings that all face the central lawn and the cathedral. Spotted along the edges were hornos (horno is Spanish for oven, and that is in fact what they are – but there’s a distinct look to the horno that you’ll find in the Southwest.)
Mission San Jose was our favorite stop on the mission tour and, if you find your time is limited and need to just choose one to see, this is the one I would highly recommend as it gives you the best picture of what mission life would have been. (Honestly? Maybe even over and above the Alamo. I’m not sure I’m allowed to say that because the Alamo, but I’ll admit to being a little underwhelmed by that one and San Jose was more what I expected.)
And – on a completely separate note – happy Father’s Day to the men in your lives!
