Willkommen! Welcome to Castroville - On Line! Castroville is a
historic little town nestled in the Medina River Valley 15 miles west of
San Antonio. Rich in history, the town was founded in 1844 by Henri
Castro and a small group of colonists mostly from Alsace, France.
"Little Alsace of Texas" has much to offer including
mouth-watering dining, shopping, antique stores and
cozy accommodations. Check the

France. Visit the
