This venue is one of San Antonio's most prided locations, especially in terms of art and culture promotion. Various cultural events like dance performances, plays and more are held here from time to time. It has aged gracefully and its beauty remains intact even today—the amazing period architecture, the glittering interiors with royal chandeliers, mesmerize whoever walks in. The place had served as the venue for many important events in the past and hence exudes an air of class and richness.
We were introduced to this hidden gem by our guide Gary with San Antonio Walks. By the way, they gave the best tour we've ever taken anywhere. But, in addition to their History tour we also did the "Walks" tour of the King William area which featured architecture of the homes there. So, being as interested in architecture as we were, Gary suggested we just stay on the trolley coming back from the King William, and go a bit further to see this dazzler. We thought that was a marvelous and generous idea on his part. We were not dissapointed. Beautiful and interesting details! Gary also pointed out the Newspaper building architecture done by a famous Italian sculpture. It seems the "Walks" people will be starting an architecture tour soon, if not already. When we return to this city we will no doubt take it also.
