Basilica of the Little Flower


Woodlawn Lake/San Antonio


The Basilica of the National Shrine of Little Flower has been a historic icon of San Antonio serving the community for nearly 100 years. Constructed during the Great Depression (1929–1931), the Basilica today stands as a monument to the great faith of devotees of St. Thérèse from throughout the United States and the world. Its famous architecture is represented in logos throughout the city, and its roots can be traced back to the development of what is now San Antonio.

In 2020, Douglas Architects and its team of consultants were selected to provide predesign and design services for the complete restoration, enhancement and expansion of the historic Basilica, Monastery, and Seminary, along with the surrounding grounds.
