Synopsis: These unique photographs portray San Antonio’s five Spanish missions, the largest such cluster in the United States. The first was San Antonio de Valero, established in 1718 with the founding of the city of San Antonio and now better known as the Alamo. The others were built along some eight miles of the San Antonio River to the south. San José, founded in 1720, was restored with its enclosed mission plaza during the 1930s. Three moved to San Antonio from East Texas in 1731. Concepción has the nation’s oldest intact Spanish-era church and significant remnants of early frescoes. San Juan and Espada have picturesque chapels facing smaller plazas. Espada’s mission acequia still flows across its original stone aqueduct. Each section includes a rare nineteenth-century image, some previously unpublished.
From the Inside Flap: ince their construction in the eighteenth century, San Antonio’s Spanish missions have held a fascination for visitors and residents alike. Here more than one hundred photographs by architectural photographer Mike Osborne provide a distinctive contemporary portrait of the five mission complexes, now partly restored, partly still in ruins. One, better known as the Alamo, is a memorial to its defenders in 1836. The others comprise San Antonio Missions National Historical Park.
