San Antonio is a culturally rich city in south-central Texas, best known as the home of The Alamo, where an infamous battle for Texas freedom was fought against Mexico in 1836. Despite being home to about 1.4 million people, San Antonio is a relatively small Texan city. However, its small size doesn’t deter thousands of visitors from flocking there each year to experience its rich culture, history and architecture.
