El Camino Real de los Tejas National Historic Trail. During Mexico's Spanish colonial period main roads were termed Royal Roads or Real in Spanish. These connected the regions to the capital Mexico City. One of these roads was El Camino Real de los Tejas, which connected Mexico to the Red River Valley , Louisiana. Some 2,500 miles long, El Camino Real de los Tejas linked Spanish missions along the trail. For over 150 years the trail was the conduit for business, emigration & war used by the armies of Spain, Mexico, France & America. It had a major influence on the boundaries of both Mexico & the US due to migrant movements.
