San Antonio Missions: Our World Heritage


This companion piece to our Heritage Education program allows you to visit all five Spanish colonial missions with the click of a mouse. Find your way around the mission grounds with drawings from the 1890s, step back in time to visit the mission ruins in the 19th and early 20th centuries, and learn more about each mission's distinctive architectural features. The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has recognized the outstanding cultural significance of missions San Antonio de Valero (the Alamo), Concepción, San José, San Juan, and Espada, by awarding them World Heritage Site designation.
