La Mansion Del Rio ... sort of like the Francis in Bath (although the Francis is *laid-back* compared to this place). Remember the Francis? ... www.gigapan.org/gigapans/13782/ Well, La Mansion Del Rio can be the center of taking walking trips all over the city centre of San Antonio.
In 1852,originally it was St Mary's School for Boys. Later it becomes St. Mary's Law School and in 1968 the Hotel opens.
Aas you can see from a sign notated in one of the snapshots, the Alamo is not very far away and history has it that General Santa Anna (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antonio_López_de_Santa_Anna ) had some canons on the property. However, to some, history will remember this place as a hotel where Bill Clinton once stayed ... I did too :)
