We’re off! To discover one of the most incredible cities in the lone star state… San Antonio! The Alamo is the symbol of the city… the site of a siege and a battle that was pivotal in the Texas revolution. Now a shrine, it’s the main historical site preserved and remembered her…but San Antonio is not just the historical center of Texas…it’s a multicultural destination that has a lot of surprises!
300 hundred year old Spanish missions…and restored historical districts coexist with amazing urban design and architecture. One of the largest cities in Texas, it’s a little bit country- and little bit cutting edge. As history tells it, a group of Spanish explorers and Franciscan missionaries discovered a small Indian settlement on a winding river in 1621 …They dubbed the river and valley ‘San Antonio’….In honor of St. Anthony of Padua. The Spanish claimed San Antonio …And the Franciscan monks built missions…To educate and convert the Native American people, missions were the social centers of early life in San Antonio…supporting the nearby forts and trading goods.
Combining old and modern, San Antonio is a mesh point of past and present, come and get to experience San Antonio in the great Lone Star state.
