The Alamo at Sunrise 2
San Antonio, Texas
Originally built by the Spanish Franciscan priest, Antonio de Olivares, and Payaya Indians, the Alamo was a Roman Catholic mission and fortress. This building is the origin of the city of San Antonio, and its most well known as the site of the Battle of the Alamo in 1836. Now it is run by the Daughters of the Texas Republic and serves as a museum for tourists and history buffs. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
