Discoveries

CATHEDRAL OF SAN FERNANDO
115 MAIN PLAZA
Cathedral-of-San-Fernando_700x380

While most visitors to San Antonio have the Alamo mission as their must-see church, they’re missing out on another landmark religious site. Founded in 1738, the Cathedral of San Fernando is the oldest cathedral in the United States – and an impressive example of Gothic Revival and American Colonial architecture as it evolved in Texas. Presiding over the city’s main plaza, the cathedral is a heart of San Antonio history and, as the headquarters of General Santa Ana, played an integral role in the siege of the Alamo.
