The architecture is amazing and the historical significance is impressive. The remains of the heroes of the Alamo, Travis, Crockett and Bowie, are just inside the Narthex on the left side in a classical white marble sarcophagus. The gold altar piece with the blue plaster domed ceiling is unforgettable. It was hard to take it all in. Do not miss the Stations of the Cross in enameled wood along the walls. Each is supported by a corbel with sad cherubs on either side. Icons adorn the walls, and John Paul II is present larger than life in the back to the right of the door. The font is simple stone and must be original to the church. It appears ancient. The cathedral is beautifully maintained. Each night at sunset it is lit, and it glows in its square in the city. Please go inside and take time to appreciate this lovely church.
