We are on a three month tour of the sun belt. We found Texas incredibly friendly until we hit Laredo. We went to this church which is in the old town, right on the Mexican border. Beautiful, but closed even though it was supposed to be open. Followed the signs "Visitor Centre" on the streets. Couldn't find it, doubt that... More

My mother was baptized and married in this church so I knew I had to visit here when we brought her remains to bury. What a beautiful church! So rich in history as it was the first church in Laredo.

San Agustin Plaza is worth the trip to the "old town" district, simply to see the church alone. Didn't have a lot of time to spend, just took some quick pics, but worth the visit. Gonna go back to the area when I have more time. As previously stated, surrounding area seems sketchy, lots of people keeping their eyes on... More

In the center of old downtown, it's a nice plaza with a very old structure. Lots of locals milling about, though as an outsider, I didn't feel completely at ease.

Beautiful cathedral at the heart of the old town, dating back to the 18th century. Dinner at Zaragoza Grill or the Tack Room are musts for visitors who want to experience Old Town Laredo's charm.

This is a classic Mexican/Texan zocalo (Plaza). Nice place to just sit and enjoy watching people. Easy walk to anywhere in downtown Laredo.

So simple and yet so much history in this small plaza. Great place to be during the 16 de septiembre Mexico's Indepenence Day celebration festivities.

Nice sculpture and benches. Nothing really noteworthy. Lots of commuters between the two countries meet there. Faces the lovely La Posada Hotel.
