Mission San Juan Capistrano

Mission San Juan Capistrano moved from east Texas to San Antonio in 1731. It is the closest mission to the San Antonio River that provided all the missions with water for their crops through an innovative series of acequias or water canals built by the mission Indians. These acequias are still visible, and at Mission San Juan you can experience history as the fields are still watered by an acequia in existence since the eighteenth century.
