Attend mass to enjoy the beauty of this church.

This church is beautiful inside and attend a mass if possible to really benefit from the serenity. The church is convenient to visit from the River Walk or your trip to the Alamo.

I was on my way back to my hotel after visiting the River Walk when I saw the church was open and decided to stop in. Since it was hot outside, it was nice and cool inside.

Located just beyond the Riverwalk, it's worth popping in to see the beautiful stained glass windows and ornate altars donated by local German families over a century ago.
