San Antonio captures the spirit of Texas. Now the ninth
largest city in the United States, the city has retained its sense of history
and tradition, while carefully blending in cosmopolitan progress. The city has
always been a crossroads and a meeting place. Sounds and flavours of Native
Americans, Old Mexico, Germans, the Wild West, African-Americans and the Deep
South mingle and merge. Close to eight million visitors a year delight in the
discovery of San Antonio's charms.
