A comprehensive catalog of the architecture inventory of the Alamo City

With a history more than 290 years old, San Antonio boasts a diverse, eclectic, and important architectural inventory. From the Spanish missions of the seventeenth century to invigorating adaptation and restoration of historic buildings and landmark new construction, a wide array of culturally significant assets reflect Anglo and Hispanic traditions alongside regional variations of southern and southwestern American styles.

San Antonio Architecture is the comprehensive catalog of the city's architecture. Complete with color illustrations, keyed maps, and informative essays, it is a must-have for every armchair and on-foot architectural, art, and community historian.
