Mission Espada Well — San Antonio TX; Benchmark Blasterz; Waymarking

USA – San Antonio Missions

This draw well in front of Mission Espada, along the San Antonio Mission Trail and El Camino Real, served thirsty mission visitors, travelers, and the people who lived here until the city of San Antonio’s modern water system built out here around the turn of the 20th century.

Mission San Francisco de Espada, better known as Mission Espada, is one of five 18th century Spanish missions located along the El Camino Real in San Antonio TX.

Together these Missions make up the San Antonio Missions UNESCO World Heritage site and the San Antonio Missions National Park.

From the National Park Service:

“El Camino Real de los Tejas National Historic Trail, a unit of the National Park System, stretches across Texas and Louisiana. There is no formal auto tour route for the trail, but visitors and convention bureaus in communities located along the trail can provide information about local attractions and activities. For more information, visit the National Park Service El Camino Real de los Tejas National Historic Trail website or call 505-988-6098.
