Development: UNESCO World Heritage Site designation process

Mission Heritage Partners provided the lead writer, in-kind staff and volunteer hours and much more in support of the nomination of the San Antonio Missions as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The eight-year project also required funds for expert nomination process consultants, detailed research, writing and editing, and the development of the final publication printed for submission. The efforts were successful. The four San Antonio Missions, along with Mission Valero/The Alamo, were designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site on July 5, 2015.
