The Alamo

San Antonio, TX, United States
19 Kudos
Honestly, I had no clue what this building is all about, I did not know it even existed. We were on the San Antonio river walk and stumble upon this building. The building looks dated and cool, there were people hanging out in front of the building so we decided to check it out. It was a very cool old historical building which I later learned it is a Spanish mission and fortress compound founded by Catholic back int he 1800. I believe their is a tour but we did not do the tour, not much of a indoor tourist. The exterior was well kept, I can only imagine the inside is probably even better kept.
