Built in the 1700’s, the San Antonio Missions are some of the oldest structures in Texas. There are four mission sites and an aqueduct within the site, which spans miles south of downtown San Antonio.
San Antonio recently petitioned UNESCO World Heritage for inclusion as a World Heritage Site. Inclusion would be a boom for international tourism to the San Antonio area, and the city and county government are spending many dollars to improve the area and their chances for inclusion. Their website is Missions of San Antonio.
I’ll blog more about my visit to the missions, but in the meantime – here’s a photo adventure!
