Espada's roots lie in east Texas, where Spain founded Mission San Francisco de los Texas in 1690. Along with several others, it served as a buffer against French encroachment from Louisiana. Fevers, floods, fires, enemies, and limited supplies prompted several relocations of this early mission.


On March 5, 1731, Mission San Francisco de la Espada was established along this bank of the San Antonio River. The Alamo City’s top attraction bustles with festive shopping and dining excitement! 


We’ll take you right to the edge of the Riverwalk where you can shop, dine and even take an optional cruise on the San Antonio River to view all the twinkling lights.  You’ll have time to stroll to the Alamo, the most visited attraction in Texas.  Nearby is the eclectic Buckhorn Museum, historic Guenther House, Pioneer Flour Mill and the King William District with its turn of the century homes.  Visit the

 fabulous Institute of Texan Cultures or the Tower of the Americas in Hemisphere Park.  The Institute of Texas Cultures celebrates 27 different cultures that helped to shape the Lone Star State.
