About

San Antonio Missions National Historical Park preserves the largest concentration of Spanish colonial architecture found anywhere in the United States. Four missions, each containing an active Catholic parish, are located along the banks of the San Antonio River. They stand as a reminder of a time when the native population of this region and aspirations of the Spanish crown crossed paths in the early 1700s. Established as a national park in 1978, San Antonio Missions National Historical Park was inscribed as World Heritage site in 2015.

They were created by four San Antonio artists: Joe de la Cruz, Albert Garza, Chris Montoya and Cristina Sosa Noriega. The works depict the four seasons, and plants and animals native to this area.
