The Spanish Governor’s Palace, a National Historic Landmark, is the last visible trace of the Presidio San Antonio de Bexar and the only remaining example in Texas of an aristocratic 18th-century Spanish Colonial town house. Constructed in 1749, it was used as the headquarters and residence of the captain of the San Antonio De Bexar Presidio and given the name the "Spanish Governor's Palace.” The building is a long one-story, U-shaped stone structure covered in stucco that surrounds a traditional Spanish patio and courtyard. Since 1931, it has operated as a Museum of Spanish Colonial History.
The Spanish Governor's Palace is located at 105 Plaza de Armas in San Antonio, Texas 78205. It is open Tuesday-Saturday from 9:00am to 5:00pm and Sunday from 10:00am to 5:00pm. The fees are $5 adult regular admission, $3 for seniors and military, and $3 for children ages 7 through 13. Children under the age of seven are free. For admission or rental information, call (210) 224-0601.
