Date of Visit: May 27, 2012
The Espada Aqueduct was our second stop on our visit to the San Antonio Missions. This was a quick stop, but totally worth it. It is just cool to see the aqueduct that was used in Spanish colonial times and continued to be used until modern times. I have read it is still functioning, but it certainly does not appear to be in use with it being totally dry on our visit. However, that could be related to the whole San Antonio River revival project going on that we noticed a lot of signs for as we drove between the missions.
