Bexar County Courthouse at Dusk-WEB
I found this one of the more fascinating building in San Antonio. The building was designed by architect J. Riely Gordon, and borders Main Plaza, along with such other architectural landmarks as the Cathedral of San Fernando. The style is Romanesque Revival, and the main material used is red sandstone. Ground was broken for Gordon's structure on August 4, 1891, and the cornerstone was laid December 17, 1892. After several delays, construction was fully completed in 1896. The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1977.
San Fernando Catherdral
San Fernando Cathedral, also called the Cathedral of Our Lady of Candelaria and Guadalupe is a cathedral of the Roman Catholic Church located in downtown San Antonio, Texas, USA, facing the city's Main Plaza. Its dome serves as the city of San Antonio's cultural and geographical center. The cathedral is also known as the Church of Nuestra Señora de la Candelaria y Guadalupe and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is notable as one of the oldest cathedrals in the United States.
In 1831, Jim Bowie married Ursula de Veramendi in San Fernando.
On September 13, 1987, Pope John Paul II visited the cathedral during the only papal visit to Texas.
It's foyer houses the tomb of Davy Crockett, William Travis and Jim Bowe.

Tower Life Building
The Tower Life Building is a landmark and historic building in Downtown San Antonio, Texas, USA.
Construction of the tower began in 1927 and the building rises 403 feet (123 meters) and has 30 floors. The building, which opened in 1929, was originally named the Smith-Young Tower and is the central component of a partially completed development called the Bowen Island Skyscrapers. The eight sided, neo-gothic brick and terra-cotta tower (complete with gargoyles) was designed by noted local architectural firm Ayres & Ayres (Atlee & Robert M. Ayres). The building also housed San Antonio's first Sears, Roebuck and Company store in its lowest 6 levels.

This is the riverside patio of the hotel we stayed in while visiting San Antonio. The blue glow on the water is the light trail from one of the river shuttles that bring visitors and quests from place to place on the riverwalk.
