Texas Trip Notes: My Favorite San Antonio Experience

IMG_2010

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.

Here are some photos:
