Fine art photographs of the Rose Window at Mission San Jose, one of San Antonio's UNESCO World Heritage Sites 

The famous Rose Window can be found on the exterior of the church sacristy at Mission San Jose in San Antonio.

Many myths and legends surround this famous window, which was likely carved by sculptor Pedro Huízar in the 1700s. The most famous of the unverified legends is that Huízar carved the window for a lady love who was lost at sea while traveling from Spain to Texas.

The Rose Window depicts no roses, but does include pomegranates.

The San Antonio Express News published a fascinating article about the Rose Window here.
