Looking for a destination rich in cultural history then a visit to the San Antonio Missions is a must. Visitors to these historic sites are welcomed to five missions all within close distance of each other. “A mission was an institution used by the Spanish to transplant their culture to frontier regions,” shares its website. The Alamo, Mission Concepción, Mission San José, Mission San Juan, Mission Espada all await to unfold the mysteries of the past that “some San Antonio residents can trace their roots back to.” They bring to life the history and culture that were more than just religious centers. They are considered a World Heritage Site which is “an honor that recognizes the fact that a place has significance beyond a local or regional audience.”
