Mission San Francisco de la Espada

This location is popular with photographers, where ruins of walls that once surrounded the mission compound, foundations of a granary and a fortified tower can still be seen. Near the mission is an aqueduct, which is an original part of an irrigation system built in the 1740s. The system includes a dam on the San Antonio River and an acequia (irrigation ditch) still in use. The aqueduct is a National Historic Landmark.
