Mission Conception

Some friends invited us to visit Mission Conception, a National Historical Park located at the heart of San Antonio, Texas, some three hours away from Houston.  In the 1930s, it was almost fully restored in its original design by the Works Projects Administration (WPA).

Great shot - I love the framing and the way the photo pulls the eye to the main building. That looks like it has some history to it.

This is a beautiful building. Glad you had a chance to visit, three hours is a good long trip though.:-0

I love San Antonio and have been there a few times in recent years. We had one of our annual forensic nursing conferences there a few years back, at the Hyatt Regency on the Riverwalk. I loved being able to look out of my room to see the Alamo there in front of me. I'd seen it before so I knew that it was really very small. As a child, I always pictured it as gigantic. I also visited this lovely mission.

I think San Antonio is one of the loveliest and most historic U. S. cities.
