Beautiful!! The art, the history, the sound, the place! Everything!! It is a laser light show with wonderful music reflected on San Fernando’s Cathedral (were the remains of Alamo heroes rest). Believe me you and your family will never forget this show.

The history of the Alamo battle displayed as a wonderful laser show starting at 9.00 pm... It's a fantastic, unique experience, very professionally done...you will surely enjoy it. So, if you are downtown at the cathedral around that time in the evening, stop by!
