About San Antonio

San Antonio is the third most populous town in the American state of Texas and is one of the cities that experienced the highest population growth in the country over the last 20 years.

Its origins date back to 1718 when the Spanish missionary Fray Antonio de Olivares founded the city of San Antonio de Bexar. Years later the city began to increase its population with residents from the Canary Islands, mainly from Fuerteventura and Lanzarote. This resulted in the creation of some of today’s important US historical monuments, such as the Cathedral of San Fernando.
