You will definitely be moved by the theatre style presentation of Texas history...an artistic light and sound show on the walls of the historic San Fernando Cathedral....so beautiful and moving. If you can see the front of the cathedral, you have a good view.

Nope. Only on 3-4 evenings (?). Google "The Saga, San Antonio, TX" and it will get you to their page which lists the times and days.

Hmm, I dont think your question is in the correct place. We are talking about the video show on the cathedral. There are tons of restaurants down by the river walk. I only saw one taco truck at the site itself.
