San Antonio in Bexar County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
Ruins of the Habitations of the Friars and Indians
This is the ruins of the habitations of the friars and Indians; refrectory, kitchen and other regular offices. In the second patio there was a gallery with weaving rooms and rooms for storing materials and utensils.
The habitations of the Indians formed a large plaza and square with the church and convent. Through the middle of the plaza ran an acequia with various trees on its banks. But in case hostile Indians might cut off the ditch a well was dug inside the convent from which all inhabitants could get an abundant supply of water.
