Mission San Jose
Address: 701 E Pyron Ave, San Antonio, TX 78214, USA

Mission San José y San Miguel de Aguayo, the largest of the Texas missions, was founded on February 23, 1720 and moved to its current location between 1721 and 1724 along the San Antonio River. Father Margil de Jesús, president of the Franciscan College of Zacatecas, was visiting Mission San Antonio de Valero in 1719 when he decided that another mission was needed and asked for permission from Marqués de Aguayo, the governor of the Province of Coahuila and Texas, to construct this one.
