The main plaza was full of life and rich architecture! Watching the sun set behind the churches was so beautiful!

This was interesting because it has a laser light show some evenings. An outdoor park space for the office lunch crowd with fountains and picnic tables.

Seeing the history of San Antonio through the free laser show IS A MUST DO! It is beautifully, tastefully done!! Bring a chair or a blanket, or come early for a table or a bench seat. This story is remarkably told!!!

Not your typical light show but shows historical moments that made San Antonio the city that she is. Music and light we're memorizing. That you for proving a lowly and professional show. Now to be missed

Free video of San Antonio history projected on the cathedral facade. The colors, music and images are fantastic! Large plaza in front of the cathedral has room for many people to watch the display.

A must see for visitors and locals. Main Plaza has gone through many renovations and beautifications', especially the stone walkways around the San Fernando Cathedral. The sitting area is beautiful, and the fountains and trees provide refuge on the many hot SA days.
