San Antonio Missions National Historical Park

Size: 824 Acres

Overview: Although humans had inhabited the area for 10,000 years, South Texas became a dangerous location in the early 1700s, with drought, disease, and Apache raids. The timing coincided with the development of Spanish missions, and the Native Americans of the area were able to survive by giving up their own culture to join them. The Missions created a new community and way of life. San Antonio Missions National Historical Park preserves these centuries-old churches and their connection to the river. Come for a relaxing, scenic escape from the urban center of San Antonio and a peek into the past.

Fees, permits, and reservations may apply.
