Spanish Governor's Palace

Once the home of the officials who ruled New Spain, now a major tourist attraction. It's small but National Geographic called it "the most beautiful building in San Antonio." The palace is filled with antiques and artifacts from the early 1700s and the patio and courtyard feature a beautiful, charming garden.

The Spanish Governor's Palace is a National Historic Landmark in Downtown San Antonio in the U.S. state of Texas. Built in the first half of the 18th century, it was originally intended to protect the nearby San Antonio de Valero Mission (the Alamo) and the growing colony. It is considered the sole remaining example of an aristocratic early Spanish house in Texas. The National Geographic Society has called the landmark "the most beautiful building in San Antonio."
