San Jose Mission

San José y San Miguel de Aguayo Mission was founded in 1720 as a refuge for those fleeing the conflict between Spain and France in eastern Texas. Just southeast of San Antonio along the San Antonio River, the Mission is now a World Heritage Site.

Misión Concepción, San Antonio

Mission Nuestra Señora de la Purísima Concepción de Acuña was originally founded in 1716 by the Franciscans. It was moved to its current location in 1731. This, and the other missions in the San Antonio area, were meant to serve as a buffer against the threat of the French in Louisiana.
