“Very impressive”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

This is only a little out of the way for for River Walk visitors, and it's very close to the President's Palace so both can be easily visited. The stained glass and the Stations of the Cross are absolutley beautiful, but go for the history because this Cathedral was and is so important to the city.

“Take A Peek!”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

A short stroll from the Riverwalk through a pretty plaza. Visitors are welcome to enter and take photos of the spacious interior. It's like a quick visit to Europe sitting at one of the outdoor tables in the plaza gazing at the exterior.

“Beautifully Restored Gold Guilded Altar”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

The San Fernando Cathedral is the seat of the bishop in San Antonio, a city with an almost 400 year Catholic history. The church has been recently restored and the gold guilded altar is magnificent.
