What is San Antonio’s La Cantera District All About?

La Cantera is a popular entertainment district nestled in Northwest San Antonio in the foothills of the Texas Hill Country. Formerly a limestone quarry, the area was redeveloped in the late 1980s and has grown into a destination for upscale shopping, gourmet dining, entertainment, and resort amenities. It is also home to Six Flags Fiesta Texas, one of the biggest amusement parks in Texas. La Cantera truly offers something for everyone in the family!
