Experience It! The San Antonio Missions
Along the San Antonio River sit five Spanish colonial era Catholic missions: Mission San Antonio de Valero, Mission San José, Mission Concepción, Mission San Juan and Mission Espada. In the 18th century, these Spanish-built missions were established in an effort to convert the native inhabitants to Spanish allegiance. Spend time exploring the Mission San José and San Antonio de Valero (commonly known as the Alamo). Hear the tales of the Alamo where an important piece of American history took place – the tragic Battle of the Alamo of 1836. Because of the missions’ historic and cultural significance, in 2015 they were named a UNESCO World Heritage site. It is the first site in Texas to receive this designation and one of only twenty-three in all of the United States.
