San Antonio: Main Plaza

Main Plaza, Main Plaza and Market Streets

Once the center of San Antonio’s civic, commercial and social life, the size and importance of the plaza diminished as a result of early 20th century road projects.

However, the original scale of the plaza was re-created in 2007. Pavers in the renovated Plaza tell some of the stories of the many historic events that transpired there. Main Plaza is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

From here, cross Dolorosa to the steps of the Bexar County Courthouse.
