Originally named Mission San Antonio de Valero, the Alamo served as home to missionaries and their Indian converts for nearly seventy years. Construction began on the present site in 1724. In 1793, Spanish officials secularized San Antonio's five missions and distributed their lands to remaining Indian residents. These men and women continued to farm the fields, once the mission's but now their own, and participated in the growing community of San Antonio.

Marriage Island

Historical Landmark
0 blocks away
The history of Marriage Island dates back to 1691, where the Spanish Missionary, Father Damian Massanet, conducted the first Catholic Mass on June 13. Over 100 years ago, a cypress tree was planted in that space, and over time the roots of this tree have formed a small island that extends out into the calm waters of the Riverwalk. The removal of this island would have resulted in permanent damage to the tree, consequently the City of San Antonio determined to leave its roots in place. This island has come to be known as Marriage Island. It is located in front of the Hotel Contessa and is a popular destination for lively and festive weddings. The tradition of marriage ceremonies on the island began shortly after the Mexican Revolution, after Mexican priests blessed the area. Some say it has even evolved into the shape of a heart and brings good luck to couples who are married there.
