Cathedral of San Fernando

From our recent visit to the Cathedral of San Fernando in San Antonio, here are several images that depict the classic exterior and the beautiful interior of this church that opened in 1750. We arrived late in the day and were allowed three minutes inside by a very hospitable caretaker.
