Dozens of shops sell everything from hand-embroidered dresses to leather belts. Market Square's working artists, musicians, dancers and major cultural events give it a rich and lively cultural atmosphere.  Visitors browse through 32 shops at "El Mercado," and 80 specialty shops in the Farmers Market Plaza.

  • San Antonio Missions National Historical Park is a piece of a UNESCO World Heritage Site preserving four of the five Spanish frontier missions in San Antonio.

  • The legacy and history of San Antonio began with a simple ceremony when in 1718 Franciscans and Spanish representatives established the first mission. Within 13 years, five were located along the San Antonio River. The missions purpose was to acculturate and Christianize the native population and make them Spanish citizens. Today, visitors can retrace the footsteps of the mission Indians and friars. And, possibly, meet descendants of those first inhabitants.

    Four Spanish frontier missions, part of a colonization system that stretched across the Spanish Southwest in the 17th, 18th, 19th centuries, are preserved here. They include Missions San Jose, San Juan, Espada, and Concepcion. The park, containing many cultural sites and natural areas, was established in 1978.

    The National Park Foundation encourages and promotes local fundraising support at individual national park sites. Los Compadres is a nonprofit partner of the National Park Service and provides volunteer support and financial aid for preservation, restoration and development projects at the San Antonio Missions National Historical Park.
