In collaboration with the City of San Antonio and the Texas General Land Office, the Alamo is initiating Phase 2 Archaeology Work for Plaza de Valero on August 7, 2023, which marks a significant milestone in the Alamo Plan. This undertaking will occur to the south of the historic Alamo footprint. As an integral part of the Alamo Plaza and Plaza de Valero revitalization efforts, this phase entails thorough archaeological investigations aimed at preserving underground features before any construction commences.
Plaza de Valero, scheduled to be completed in 2024, will serve as downtown San Antonio's newest outdoor community space and a gateway to the historic site. With a mix of uses and a covered pavilion for community events, the plaza will provide a vibrant gathering space for visitors to reflect on the Alamo's cultural heritage.
