Additional Details:
San Fernando Cathedral The original parish church of San Antonio "The old cathedral" has watched over the city through 200 years of struggle and progress. During the siege of the Alamo it was held by Santa Anna, and his flag flew from its towers. From these same towers had flown Texans' flag of victory a short timer before. Tradition says that soon after the fall of the Alamo, an influential Mexican, whose sympathies were with the Texans, gathered together what bones of the heroes he could find, and buried them, secretly under the altar of San Fernando. The church has always been kept in perfect repair and is in daily constant use. Visitors are welcome
