In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, the Alamo will offer its first mission-era specific guided tour for visitors on October 9. Originally scheduled for October 2, this tour was rescheduled to this weekend due to inclement weather. The Mission San Antonio de Valero Tour will focus on the Alamo's time as a Spanish mission and will cover the mission's history from its inception through 1793.
Led by either Alamo Curator Ernesto Rodriguez or Alamo Archaeologist Kristi Nichols, this hour-long walking tour will travel through Alamo Plaza and the surrounding area. This one-time event will feature in-depth discussions about the mission's origins, its construction, the importance of water, the changes the mission went through over time, and much more.
Tickets are $40 per person and are extremely limited. They can be purchased on theAlamo.org today. Members of Friends of the Alamo can attend for free!
