Beautiful to visit both day and night. Light show is currently running Tuesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at 9:00pm, 9:30pm, and 10:00pm as of January 2017. Be aware there are panhandlers in the area that will approach you and ask for money. Main plaza is free to enter. The light show was excellent!
The cathedral rivals many I have seen in Europe in grandeur if not in size. It's only about a five minute walk from the River Walk a well worth it.
Very nice plaza, in front of the Cathedral. There was a very nice Christmas Tree outside. Nice place after you go to Mass. Is clean. Close to riverwalk hotels (3 blocks from Westin) and close to the other side to the Mexican Plaza -Mall- (4 blocks).
the Cathedral is located here as well as a great location to rest a bit and then continue your exploration of downtown San Antonio. Easy access to the River Walk and other attractions. A few benches are located here and some water features. I assume in summer and warmer months lots of activities happen here on the plaza.

Its so great for all the family. They have little coffee and raspa stands. A whoel bunch of tables and chairs for to sit and enjoy the city. The have a great light show at night, which looks so beautiful, it plays along with a movie and music.
Had a great time watching the lights on this historic church. There was a large crowd of people. There is no seating, but it only lasts a few minutes so standing up while watching is advised.
If you are a people watcher, you will love this place! Bring your lunch and friend. Don't forget a snack for the pigeons. During the week, there are vendors at lunchtime. Kids are jumping in the water features. Sometimes, there are vendors selling mexican trinkets, jewelry. We bought lunch from The San Antonio Food Pantry, and the food was delicious.
