San Antonio is an old town.  An historic town.  The first Europeans to arrive on the scene were in 1691.  I'm not going to go into the complex history of the place here, suffice it to say, that not too many years subsequent to 1691 there was construction going on, the remnants of some of which still exists to this day.  There are plenty of interesting archaeological, architectural and historical sites to visit in town.  Choose from the following:

Historical Sites from the 1700s

...be sure and get my city guide book...it's cheap and filled with real info, not tourist junk..

Besides the places I've listed on the above pages, I've left off many places that are of historical significance but there's just not a lot to see.  Main Plaza and Military Plaza come immediately to mind.  These plazas have plenty of history but unless someone were to stand there and tell you about it, one doesn't get any sense of it just by seeing them.  I may be beating a dead horse, but if you want to really get a feel for the city and its history you sure couldn't go wrong getting a copy of my city guide.
