San Antonio de Valero -- the Alamo
Welcome to the church commonly called the Alamo. The actual mission
grounds are larger. If reconstructed today as it once was they would
have to remove blocks of businesses, the post office,
and a hotel. The first floor of the long barracks has been preserved
and is open.
Behind the church is a garden with a reconstructed acequia.
A huge oak in the Convento Courtyard spreads over the old well. The
Cavalry Courtyard is now used for storytelling by docents. Be sure to
time for the Wall of History.
