My husband and I recently took a trip to San Antonio. While he was attending meetings and lectures, I got to tour this beautiful city. As with any old city, there are so many amazing sights to see. I got a little snap happy with my camera, so I decided to post photos in several installments so as not to make your head spin. This first post is about a FEW of the buildings and sights I saw around town.
The Espada aqueduct, completed in 1740 and was used by the indians and missionaries that called Mission San Francisco de la Espada home.
This lovely historical building made of red sandstone is the Bexar County Courthouse. Its so large that I couldn't fit it all in, so I focused on some of the architectural design elements.
Corbells (?) and rafters at one of the missions.
Fabulous details on a lovely building downtown.
One of the gates at the Alamo
The Menger Hotel built in 1859
A beautiful, sunlit stairway at Mission Concepcion
