No visit to San Antonio would be complete without a visit to The Alamo. Originally called Mision San Antonio de Valero, The Alamo was built in the 1700’s by Roman Catholic Missionaries. Undoubtedly, The Alamo is best remembered as a major battle site in 1836 during the Texas Revolution. Shortly thereafter, the battle cry of “Remember the Alamo” became a national cause. Interestingly, The Alamo has stood under the flags of six different nations and served as the garrison for five armies. While most people imagine The Alamo as a large complex in the middle of nowhere, it’s actually in the heart of San Antonio. Given the location of The Alamo, the entire area is surrounded by shops and restaurants. The Alamo was designated a U.S. National Landmark in 1960, added the to U.S. Registry of Historic Places in 1966 and became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2015. Tip: While visiting The Alamo is free, a guided tour will run you $15 (children 8 and under are free). We highly recommend the guided tour. It’s interesting and will give you a much better sense of why The Alamo is important to both Texas and American history. ......
