San Antonio Missions

We were able to bike along the Mission Trail in San Antonio... We visited two of the Missions.

The first one is the largest 'Mission San Jose'
The wall around the Mission
 Inside the Guard Tower
 A Natives home... 2 rooms..
The main court yard had a few of these ovens

The circular stairs to the Bell Tower
Back side view of the Cathedral
Running Water (after you ran  to get the water to the fill cistern:)
I love arches...and had to include this picture...
The Cathedral is used for weekly services.
This Mission was restored to it's original design in the 1930's
I hope this isn't picture overload... but the other Mission we visited was "Mission San Jose"
 The walls around this Mission did not seem to have been restored.
 The Cathedral...which is also still in use!
What I found so interesting...is that someone lives in this house on the property...
I'm thinking it is the priest

These Missions were built in the 1700's...and life within the walls was very interesting!!
