What a depressed area. There was trash all over and the park had lots of what appeared to be vagrants around. Most of the stores were either locked up or boarded up. Was not worth the parking meter fee to see the area. Put this on the "must miss" list.

This was a nice park to come across and sit down and relax on a hot day. It is across the street from the cathedral. There is also a nice gazebo-ish structure in the middle of the park. There are numerous monuments and memorials around the park.

This in and of itself may not be a destination, but if you are going to the cathedral, Rio Grande Museum, or one of the nearby hotels or shops, then you will obviously walk by or through it so stop and visit.

It is a part of Laredo and with it's old plaza cobble stone streets. Shops and touristy yet simple and inviting. Good eats and local shops. Fun to visit since attractions are limited.

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 and Mexico. The WCHM had an interesting exhibit of haunted house legends in the area-perfect for Holloween. Take coins for the downtown parking meters.

So simple and yet so much history in this small plaza. Great place to be during the 16 de septiembre Mexico's Indepenence Day celebration festivities.

Nice sculpture and benches. Nothing really noteworthy. Lots of commuters between the two countries meet there. Faces the lovely La Posada Hotel.

We were in town during one of the events in the month-long George Washington Birthday Celebration - the Jamboozie - held in the general area of the plaza. There is interesting shopping in that area - extremely cheap stuff, but kind of fun to look at. Some of the characters around the plaza are a little bit dodgy looking, but there is a lot of security around all the time, and it's well-lit at night.

Laredo was a dilapidated low rise disappointment. The plaza was in tune with the rest of the downtown area. It was strewn with rubbish and was a depressing place even on a lovely bright afternoon. Whilst tying to find a parking space we drove down a one way street into the border crossing point. Luckily the US authorities were most helpful and allowed us to return to the town via a restricted, barriered route. This mistake, we discovered, was not unusual due to poor road signage.

The Cathedral of San Agustin is the seat of the Catholic Diocese of Laredo, Texas. It is located in the heart of the downtown area in the San Agustin Historical District. The present church building dates from 1872. The bishop is James Anthony Tamayo.In 2000 the Diocese of Laredo was established and the San Agustin Church was made its Cathedral by order of Pope John Paul II.[4] Today, the San Agustin Cathedral is one of the oldest in the Southwest still standing. It is also the second tallest building in Laredo. The San Agustin de Laredo Historic District is in the National Register of Historical Places. The construction of the present day church began in1866. San Agustin Church is a Gothic Revival structure with a five-story- 141 foot bell / clock tower. All the windows have the traditional Gothic shape with stained glass located between structural bays of its masonry walls. A French priest, Pierre Yves Keralum, was the designer and architect for this historical monument. The new church was opened on December 12, 1872. If you like old churches, this is one to visit on a trip to Laredo, Tx. The location is very conveniently located across from a hotel and small Historical Museum plus an outlet mall is in walking distance as well. The location of the church is in old downtown Laredo where lots of businesses are located that sell a wide variety of things. The church is also located about one block from the International Bridge leading to Mexico.

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.
