USA: Alamo Mission in San Antonio

On Friday I got two postcards: one from the USA and one from Hong Kong.

The card from the USA shows the Alamo Mission in San Antonio in the US State of Texas. The Alamo Mission was founded by Franciscan missionaries in 1744 and was first used to teach Native Americans the Christian beliefs. During the Battle of the Alamo in 1836 Texian soldiers were killed in the Alamo Mission by Mexican troops. Since 1968 it is used as museum. As one of the San Antonio Missions it is since 2015 on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
