The light show that is provided a few nights a week summarises the history of San Antonio and is broadcast onto the cathedral. Definitely worth watching and spending the 30 minutes or so to watch it.

Don't miss this if in San Antonio. The light show is simply amazing. Located in the Main Plaza, the show starts at 9PM. Get there early and grab a table and chair.

Tour the shops. Watch the light show. Eat at one of several very nice downtown restaurants. You can't say you went to San Antonio if you don't come here.
