Texas Trip Notes: My Favorite San Antonio Experience


We left San Antonio with wonderful memories of our many and varied experiences there, but my favorite of all was the Saga light show at the San Fernando Cathedral.  I had never before seen anything like it.  This 24-minute light show, created by artist Xavier de Richemont, told the story of San Antonio from its origins to the present in a series of images projected on the facade of the cathedral.  There was background music, but few words, accompanying the montage and ever-changing pictures.  The evening show played on a loop, twice each hour.  It was free.  We just sat on the ground in the square in front of the cathedral downtown.  The show was utterly entrancing.
