The annual World Heritage Festival which recognizes the San Antonio Missions as a UNESCO World Heritage Site begins virtually on Tuesday. This marks the fifth anniversary of the Missions’ designation as a World Heritage Site, the only one in Texas and one of only 24 across the country. This year also marks the 300th anniversary of Mission San Jose. “Five years ago our community achieved World Heritage status, a community process that took over nine years.”
