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.

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. The moment you walk thru the huge wooden doors your transformed into "old" Laredo. Even if you're not catholic the... More

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
