Relive The Texas Revolution At The Alamo, San Antonio

In 1836, a famous battle took place in San Antonio between local freedom fighters and the Mexican army at this Spanish mission. Originally known as the Misión San Antonio de Valero (San Antonio Mission of the Brave), today the adobe structure is home to a museum of fascinating exhibits that commemorate this important event in Texas history. Located just a quick walk from the River Walk in downtown, this is a must-see attraction. Visit this free historic site and understand why the cry of "Remember the Alamo!" still holds importance to this day. Though entry is free, visitors are encouraged to keep a calm composure inside the mission premises.

  • What Is The History Of The Building?

    The Alamo began as a Spanish mission constructed sometime in the 18th century.  In the late 1700's it was abandoned before becoming an outpost for Spanish and then Mexican troops. The Battle of the Alamo in 1836 was a turning point that eventually brought the building into the hands of Texas.
