This national Basilica is gorgeous and just so spiritually inspiring and uplifting. From its homage to St. Theresa of Lisieux to the stained glass and an absolutely beautiful altar, this is a must visit for Catholics and pilgrims visiting San Antonio!

Saw this on TripAdvisor, so had to go look for it. This is a beautiful old Basilica with a beautiful interior and stained glass windows. Worth going out of the way to see.

It's hard to miss this beautiful church when you are on the city's Westside of town. I have not been inside, but the architecture of this basilica is gorgeous.

It didn't get a 5 because I just got back from Europe. It's not in a very good neighborhood so lock your cars and bring your belongings with you. But it's beautiful and worth a visit.
