Where is San Antonio Missions National Historical Park?
As part of the San Antonio Missions National Historical Park, the National Park Service manages four of the former five Spanish Mission stations in the city. The fifth mission station is the Alamo, which belongs to the state of Texas and is therefore not subject to the National Authority.
The missions originated during the Spanish colonization of the American Southwest and served to spread the Christian faith among the Indians. The buildings were not only used as a place of prayer, but also served, for example, as school and training buildings or as places of trade where the products of the fields were offered. In addition to the four mission stations, the park includes an aqueduct built by Franciscan monks in 1731 and the historic Rancho de las Cabras, run by the missionaries, just outside the city.
The National Historical Park was opened in 1983 and annually attracts more than 25,000 visitors. The Visitor Center is located on Mission San Jose and is open daily from 9 am to 5 pm.
