On the east side of Alamo Plaza is the most famous spot in Texas where 189 defenders fell on March 6, 1836, after repeated attacks by Mexican General Santa Anna's army. Mission San Antonio de Valero (the Alamo) was established in 1718 as the city's first mission. The chapel, one of the most photographed facades in the nation, and the Long Barracks are all that remain of the original fort. The Long Barracks Museum and Library is located near the chapel. The museum contains relics and mementos from the Republic of Texas and offers a narration on the fall of the Alamo. The Alamo is located in the heart of the city, inside beautifully landscaped grounds. 300 Alamo Plaza, San Antonio, TX 78205

River Walk (Paseo Del Rio)

The San Antonio River is the heart of the country's oldest and most extensive Spanish-colonial water system, having supplied water for the construction of San Antonio's five historic missions. Today, the river still winds its way through the city, defining neighborhoods and offering a landscape of beauty and tranquility to behold from its shady banks. In the city center, the River Walk, or Paseo del Rio, is made up of cobbled walkways, bridges, cafés, shops, restaurants and bars along the river's edge. Its three miles of pathways are a full level below city streets, creating the ambiance of a secluded oasis. Aside the meandering San Antonio River, stone pathways connect shops, restaurants, hotels and museums with a blend of historic and modern architecture that resonates the depth of this centuries-old metropolis. Among these walkways, commerce meets culture with the sounds of mariachis serenading diners and river taxis carrying guests across the spring-fed river that has attracted people to this region for centuries. Soon the River Walk will extend from two to thirteen miles, connecting many of San Antonios prestigious museums and historic districts with beautifully preserved 18th century, Spanish Colonial missions.110 Broadway, Suite 440, San Antonio, TX 78205 Phone: (210) 227-4262 Fax: (210) 212-7602 View website.

San Antonio Missions National Historic Park Comprised of four out of five San Antonio missions: missions Concepción, San José, San Juan and Espada. Travel from mission to mission on the eight-mile Missions Bike and Hike Trail.

Mission San José San José y San Miguel de Aguayo, the “Queen of the Missions,” is the largest mission in San Antonio. Spanish designers, directing workers from the local Coahuiltecan tribe, built the mission in the late 1700s using Texas limestone and brightly colored stucco. At its height, it provided sanctuary and a social and cultural community for more than 300 Indians, and was surrounded by acres of fields and livestock herds. The Works Progress Administration (WPA) almost fully restored it to its original design in the 1930s. The mission church holds a Mariachi Mass on Sundays and has a rose window in the sacristy.

La Villita As San Antonio's first neighborhood, La Villita, "the little village," was originally established by Spanish soldiers stationed at the Alamo. Today it is a historic arts village that houses shops, art galleries and restaurants in Spanish, Mexican, German and French-influenced residences.

San Antonio Missions

In the 18 th century, the Spanish church established five Catholic missions along the San Antonio River, primarily to extend its dominion northward from Mexico, but also to convert the native population. What remains of the largest concentration of missions in North America provides an interesting look into Texas' history.

The Alamo

The first mission established in San Antonio, the Alamo (San Antonio de Valero) served as a way station between east Texas and Mexico. Already 100 years old when it fell in the notorious Battle of the Alamo, you'll find it in the heart of the city. View the often-photographed church façade, as well as relics in the Long Barrack Museum.

Mission San José

While the Alamo is the most widely known and visited, travelers shouldn't make it their sole stop inside San Antonio Missions National Park. The San José, established in 1720, was a model for other missions--and the most prosperous.

Located just south of the Alamo, this “Queen of the Missions” represented a social and cultural center. Its 300 residents sustained themselves by raising livestock and tending to vast fields. The mission had its own gristmill and granary, which have been restored.

At the church, look for flying buttresses, carvings, quatrefoil patterns, polychromatic plaster and the famed “Rose Window,” a superb example of Spanish Colonial ornamentation. Explore the stairway that leads to the belfry and choir loft; all 25 risers were hand-hewn form a single log and assembled without the use of nails or pegs.

Mission Concepción

Arguably the most beautiful mission church, Concepción looks much like it did in 1731 when it hosted many religious ceremonies. The structure is, in fact, the oldest un-restored church in America. While its exterior paintings have faded, guests can view conserved interior remnants of wall and ceiling paintings.

Mission San Juan

The San Juan's fertile farmlands allowed for a self-sustainable mission, and its surplus helped supply the region with produce. The chapel and bell tower are still in use. Note the typical Romanesque archway at the entrance gate and the remains of a half-completed, more elaborate church. Guests can also tour a self-guided nature trail that leads to the river.

Mission Espada

This mission contains the best-preserved segment of the acequia (irrigation system) that was used to bring water to the fields. Today, part of the acequia operates the Espada aqueduct and dam. Also noteworthy are an unusual door and stone archway.

All five missions are accessible via the six-mile Hike and Bike trail. When visiting, keep in mind that the San Jose is an active parish, and mass may be in session.

Witte Museum This family-oriented museum is geared towards experiencing South Texas history, natural science and technology. There are mummies and dinosaurs, Native American pictographs, Fiesta gowns and an EcoLab with living Texas critters – like tarantulas. The museum recently acquired a circus collection, and a hummingbird and butterfly garden sprawls across the backyard. Also out back: the four-story H-E-B Science Treehouse, with hands-on science exhibits that seem to be the biggest hit with kids.
