About Spanish Missions of Texas:
After the conquest of Mexico by Hern n Cort's in the sixteenth century, conquistadors and explorers poured into the territory of Nueva Espa a. The Franciscans followed in their wake but carved a different path through a harsh and often violent landscape. That heritage can still be found across Texas, behind weathered stone ruins and in the pews of ornate, immaculately maintained naves.
