la villita is located at the intersection of alamo and nueva streets across from hemisfair park. la villita is san antonio's oldest neighborhood dating back to the mission days. in 1836 mexican general santa ana used la villita as his cannon line during the assault on the alamo. today la villita is home to craft shops and cafes. la villita has a more historic and cultural atmosphere than the river walk and market square. a interesting place to visit when in downtown san antonio.
