Spanish Governor's Palace
The Spanish Governors Palace © Lutz Fischer-Lamprecht
Described by National Graphic as the most beautiful building in San Antonio, the diminutive palace once served as the headquarters for the Spanish rulers of this region. The ten-room building is built in the Spanish Colonial style, and although the exact date isn't know, it could have been erected as early as 1722. The lovely building is filled with treasures and historical relics from the 18th century and the patio flows onto a relaxing garden that is perfect for contemplating the glory of times past. The palace is an easy walk from the San Antonio Riverwalk and it tis worth taking some time out of exploring the Riverwalk to take a look at the palace. On the last Sunday of every month a living history group visits in period costume and shares information and reenactments with visitors.
