The Mission San Antonio de Valero (a.k.a. The Alamo), where Mexican General Santa Anna's army defeated Davy Crockett, Jim Bowie and 188 others on March 6, 1836, is the most famous spot in Texas. Its museum displays items from the Republic of Texas and documents the story of the Alamo's fall. Built in 1718 as the city's first mission, the chapel is one of the United States' most photographed facades.
