Mission Concepcion

Posted by
PD (Kansas, United States) on 28 February 2009 in Architecture.

A chain of five missions established along the San Antonio River in the 18th century became the largest concentration of Catholic missions in North America. Built primarily to expand Spanish New World influence northward from Mexico, the missions also served to introduce native inhabitants into Spanish society.

The Alamo was the first one - established in 1718. Mission Concepcion, above, was built in 1731. If you get to San Antonio - go on the Missions tour!

Thanks for stopping by.
