The Mystery of Antonio Tello and the Doorway at Mission Espada

Current day Espada Church

For years there has been speculation as to reason for the odd design of the front door of the little church at Mission San Francisco de la Espada in San Antonio. Here you will find a story of promise and failure, of adultery and murder,  and finally clever adaptation to the conditions at hand. 

You will also discover an important symbol put there by the original builders but laying hidden before our eyes for over two centuries.
