Mission San Francisco de la Espada

Also established in 1731, it is popular with photographers. 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 over Piedras Creek, part of the irrigation system built in the 1740s. The system includes a dam on the San Antonio River and acequia, irrigation ditch, still in use. The aqueduct is a national historic landmark.
