The Bridge Street History Center

The iconic Alamo is one of five missions built in San Antonio by Spanish missionaries in the 1700s. Originally named Mission San Antonio de Valero when it was founded in 1718 as the first and northernmost mission along the San Antonio River, the beloved mission chapel dates to the 1750s.

The San Antonio Missions’ visitors center at Mission San José is a good starting place for today’s explorers, who can bike the seven-mile trail connecting the lower four missions.

Don’t miss little details at each mission, such as the original frescos inside Mission Concepción or the legendary rose window at Mission San José. San José’s onsite church, constructed of limestone in 1787, is still in use today.

San Antonio Missions National Historical Park also includes Rancho de las Cabras, the site of a ranching operation that supported Mission San Francisco de la Espada during the last half of the 18th century.

The ranch sustained large herds of cattle, sheep, goats, horses, and oxen, bred and tended by Spanish vaqueros and American Indians. Located along the San Antonio River near Floresville, the National Park Service provides guided tours of the Rancho de las Cabras site the first Saturday of each month.
