The Alamo is one of the most famous sites in US history, forever linked to the 13-day siege in 1836 that ended with the deaths of defenders James Bowie, William Travis and Davy Crockett. The 18th-century Mission San Antonio de Valero complex became known as the Alamo after it was fortified by Mexican soldiers.

When the complex was taken by Texan troops in December 1835, the fight was on between the Texan defenders and Mexican attackers.

After the events of the 1830s, the Alamo’s semi-ruined buildings were used as a garrison and storehouse. Over the past 100 years, the Alamo has been restored and now receives more than 2.5 million visitors a year.

Tour the chapel and barracks, small museum, diorama and gardens to learn more about the Alamo and early-Texan history.

Practical Info

The Alamo is in downtown San Antonio, a block north of the River Walk.
