Welcome to San Antonio
San Antonio captures the spirit of Texas. The seventh 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. The sounds and flavors of Native Americans, Old Mexico, Germans, the Wild West, African-Americans and the Deep South mingle and merge. Over thirty million visitors a year delight in the discovery of San Antonio's charms.
Intimate Impressionism from the National Gallery of Art is an extensive exhibition of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings on its first-ever worldwide tour.
