About the Alamo
One of the most popular attractions in all of San Antonio is the Alamo, the Spanish mission that began as the San Antonio de Valero in 1718. A landmark to see for all ages, the establishment of this mission played an important role in the settlement of Texas and the Southwest. For over 300 years, the Alamo has been a staple for history, and families from all over the nation flock here to learn about its history. Serving as the site of the 1836 battle that enshrined it in the hearts of Texans, the Alamo is a place like no other. Today, it continues to play a major role in the commercial development of our city. To learn more, visit http://www.thealamo.org/.
