Old Laredo

You really understand where you are. It is easy to tell that you are at the end of the US and the Beginning of Mexico.

The plaza across from the cathedral is very old Mexico. There is nothing noteworthy about the plaza. Walking the square is interesting with the Independence Museum across the street. 2 blocks away is the Webb County Historical Museum(WCHM). The Independence Museum is interesting in that it chronicles a shortlived attempt to establish a republic by three territories sandwiched inbetween Texas... More

Travelers are routinely robbed of the luggage and treated with disrespect, nor will the local police do anything to help recover your things even though they know who did it..

Right to putting quarters in parking meter. Church was beautiful on the outside, it was closed inside. The square was getting ready for Cinco de Mayo. The square seemed to be flourishing. People all around. Pavilion ready. Stores were busy right off square. Old hotel was quaint.

Beautiful white church stands out in the area due to it's size. We walked over and got pictures of it. There was a wedding or some sort of celebration going on so we didn't go inside. The outside photographed nice.

Nice little plaza to visit while shopping the downtown area. There's so much history here surrounding the plaza. Across the street one can explore tge historic San Agustín Church or even attend one of the masses conducted in English or Spanish. Also located on the same plaza is the historic La Posada hotel. You can also find several museums and... More

What a lovely plaza. There are historic plaques and a statue dedicated to San Augustin. It would be wonderful if the surrounding historic buildings could be restored. The benches on the plaza are dedicated to many local supporters. Watch for interesting birds and interact with friendly people.
