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.

If you see it early in the morning if feels like you went back in time. Later in the day it has too many people.

It is a part of Laredo and with it's old plaza cobble stone streets. Shops and touristy yet simple and inviting. Good eats and local shops. Fun to visit since attractions are limited.

It is worth your time to walk around the San Augustin Plaza and read the historical markers. There is so much history there. Sit on a bench for a little while and watch the world go by. You can imagine what it has been like for a century.

I walked around the plaza during the day & it was interesting. It was the closest to Mexico as we could get. Beautiful church & impressive stained glass. We stayed in La Posada so it was very convenient. If you want cheap shopping they are around this area.

It is historical sight, and there is the museum and the church. I gone through there at night walking, and I would recommend going in the day time. There are really bad night bars around the area. There are some characters who leave a lot to be desired. The shopping is not that great! I would stick to Mall del... More

As I was visiting the church we took a look around town, it was gorgeous....The only issue was parking. We had to park 2 blocks away because the public parking was going to close in an hour and they wouldn't allow us to park there. That didn't make any sense to me but whatever I guess..This is another attraction if... More
