Tips

  • San Fernando Cathedral, founded in 1731, is the oldest, continuously functioning religious community in Texas. Teams started race day 3 here at the San Fernando Cathedral! Race to the Alamo
  • Texas hero James Bowie married Ursula de Veramendi in its sanctuary, and Mexican General Santa Anna used the church as a lookout.
  • Not to be missed when visiting San Antonio. A few blocks off the river walk downtown but worth the afternoon stroll. Don't expect a European Cathedral but you will see art typical of the culture.
  • Alamo heroes' resting place
  • Very nice church
  • Wait to hear the organ... acousics are lovely.
  • Beautiful! The lightshow was great. Mujeres Mercado outside on Saturday night was even better. Def a place to stop by if you're dt.
  • proud to be catholic! God bless!
  • Hermoso el trabajo que realizan
  • After the Alamo make sure you stop here its about a 15 minute walk from the Alamo. The remains of the Heroes from the Alamo are laid to rest here. A really beautiful place. Pictures are allowed

  • San Fernando de Bexar Cathedral is the oldest cathedral in the state of Texas! Within these walls lie the bones of the "heroes" of the Alamo... David Crockett, James Bowie, and William B. Travis.
  • Es la iglesia catlica ms antigua de USA; pequea pero acogedora. Cuenta con una tienda de regalos, un minimuseo donde explica su historia y sanitarios muy limpios.
  • 4 nights/week you can witness a video art installation projected on this 18th century cathedral. The 24-minute video is free and tells of San Antonio's vibrant history.
  • Often considered the heart and soul of San Antonio, San Fernando Cathedral has played an integral part of the city's growth. Built in 1738, its history includes both religious and secular duties.
  • Realmente me sorprendi, una arquitectura muy bonita y el interior es limpio, solemne, iluminado clido. Una iglesia muy linda.
