As you get near the Alamo you will see this beautiful mural on the side of one of the buildings in San Antonio, Texas.

the alamo

The Alamo is one of the most famous landmarks in the world, with several movies telling the story of the fight for Texas Independence. 

statue of alamo heros

About a block from the alamo is this great sculpture of the heros that fought at the Alamo.  This is a relatively new scuplture. 

alamo wall

This exterior wall looks original to the Alamo.  The Alamo was acutally a mission.  You can take a mission tour of the other missions in San Antonio and get stamps for your Passport to National Parks Book.   Do you see the metalwork in the arches? 

famous alamo line

Here is the famous line where Colonel Travis drew his line in the sand and asked his men to step over the line to declare their intentions to continue to serve. 

alamo plaque

Here is the plaque with his actual words. 

alamo courtyard

This old tree is in the courtyard of the Alamo. 

alamo cannon

An original cannon.

alamo building

The Alamo musuem was in this lovely building.  There is alot of detail work on the facade, but I'm not sure if it is circa 1836 or later.  Hope you get a chance to visit the Alamo someday and experience the true Texan Spirit.
