La Villita, Spanish for "little town", is the original settlement of Old San Antonio, Texas. It's one square block in the heart of downtown San Antonio, with artists and craftsmen, shops and restaurants, and the La Villita Arneson River Theatre. Located on the east bank of The Riverwalk, La Villita was developed in the mid to late 19th century as a settlement adjacent to The Alamo.

Today, La Villita is an active arts and crafts community amidst beautifully landscaped grounds and historic buildings. Architectural styles range from simple adobe structures to early Victorian and natural cut limestone buildings.
