Panoramic pictures of the San Antonio skyline show off a city home to 1.3 million residents that has grown to become the seventh most populated city in the United States. Commonly considered one of the most beautiful cities in Texas, San Antonio skyline pictures show a great city of the American Southwest with Spanish influence evident in its wide range of architectural styles.
The most famous building in the city - the Alamo - is frequently shown in many San Antonio pictures. Built in 1718, the site was a former fortress and Roman Catholic mission, and was the site of the 1836 Battle of the Alamo. The original influence of many Roman Catholic and Spanish missions is evident throughout San Antonio photos, combining a unique mixture of French and Spanish architecture throughout its skyline with a distinctly unique Southwestern flair.
One of the most easily recognizable buildings in San Antonio skyline pictures is the Alamodome, a 65,000 seat stadium and convention center. This facility is the home site, and used for the San Antonio Spurs (NBA); the UTSA Roadrunners (NCAA); the Alamo Bowl (NCAA); the San Antonio Texans (CFL); the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, and others.
San Antonio skyline pictures show one of the most culturally rich cities of the American Southwest. In the city's history, it has been governed by France, Spain, Mexico, the Republic of Texas, the Confederate States of America, and the United States of America.
