Мексиканская свадьба, готова венчаться в испанской католической миссии Эспада, Сан Антонио, Техас. Всего миссий пять во главе со знаменитым Аламо, символом Техасской свободы. Эти миссии были построены с 17 по 19 век как аутпосты христианской миссионерской деятельности на американском континенте.

Mexican Wedding in historic Espada Catholic Mission, San Antonio Texas.

San Antonio Missions National Historical Park preserves four of the five Spanish frontier missions in San Antonio, Texas. These outposts were established by Catholic religious orders to spread Christianity among the local natives. These missions formed part of a colonization system that stretched across the Spanish Southwest in the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries.

In geographic order from north (upstream of the San Antonio River) to south (downstream) the missions are located as follows: Mission Concepcion, Mission San Jose, Mission San Juan, and Mission Espada. The Espada Aqueduct, also part of the Park, is due east of Mission San Juan, across the river. The fifth (and best known) mission in San Antonio, the Alamo, is not part of the park, rather it is owned by the State of Texas, and operated by the Daughters of the Republic of Texas; it is upstream from Mission Concepcion.
