spanish settlers: In 1836, the Alamo was the site of a legendary battle as Texas fought for independence from Mexico, according to The Chronicle Herald. A tricentennial commemorative week is scheduled for May 1 to May 6. The city was founded in 1718 when Spanish settlers built the Mission San Antonio de Valero today known as the Alamo along the San Antonio River. For visitors, May 4 will be of particular interest, with arts events, a festival and fireworks. TRICENTENNIAL COMMEMORATIVE WEEK The Alamo and four other 18th-century missions built as outposts of Spain's colonial empire make up the only UNESCO World Heritage site in Texas. For travellers who'd like to see San Antonio but can't make that week in May, the city is hosting exhibitions and other festivals throughout the year, and you can visit the Alamo anytime, along with the River Walk just across the street.
