Absolutely spectacular video, projected onto the facade of the San Fernando Cathedral, that walks you through the history of San Antonio. Make sure you see it if you are in town on the days when the show is on. The show is a bit longer...More

This 20 or-so minute show was absolutely wonderful. Short enough to stand and hold our attention, but long enough to make it worth-while. I would encourage everyone to see this when they visit San Antonio. My children (aged 3,10, &16) likes it too! The music...More

Visited San Antonio with our teenage grandkids. This laser presentation was the highlight of our trip. Very well done depicting the history of both Texas and the USA. This attraction is a "don't miss" if you visit San Antonio.

This was neat, but it left me unimpressed. I think the problem was they need to add more speakers near the rear of the watching area. I feel like if we were closer or if there were speakers in the back, this would of been...More

Nope. Only on 3-4 evenings (?). Google "The Saga, San Antonio, TX" and it will get you to their page which lists the times and days.

Hmm, I dont think your question is in the correct place. We are talking about the video show on the cathedral. There are tons of restaurants down by the river walk. I only saw one taco truck at the site itself.
