Beautiful old Spanish Plaza with Church and hotel

This is a wonderful plaza that is typical of Spanish influence in south Texas, and very common throughout Mexico's towns and even bigger cities.

This is a beautiful part of the old town of Laredo. The architecture of the church is beautiful and there is a lovely park across the street. Interesting statues in the park!

Having spent years in Southern California, this place gives you the feeling of being in Mexico. Many shops and everything is within walking distance. Church was closed when we got there but we will try and come back. They take US dollars and pesos.

The plaza across from the cathedral is very old Mexico. There is nothing noteworthy about the plaza. Walking the square is interesting with the Independence Museum across the street. 2 blocks away is the Webb County Historical Museum(WCHM). The Independence Museum is interesting in that it chronicles a shortlived attempt to establish a republic by three territories sandwiched inbetween Texas... More

You really understand where you are. It is easy to tell that you are at the end of the US and the Beginning of Mexico.

Right to putting quarters in parking meter. Church was beautiful on the outside, it was closed inside. The square was getting ready for Cinco de Mayo. The square seemed to be flourishing. People all around. Pavilion ready. Stores were busy right off square. Old hotel was quaint.

Beautiful white church stands out in the area due to it's size. We walked over and got pictures of it. There was a wedding or some sort of celebration going on so we didn't go inside. The outside photographed nice.
