It was founded by Empresario of the Republic of Texas Henri Castro, who brought a group of settlers here, mostly from the Alsatian region of France. West of San Antonio, the past and present mingle in this village on the Medina River. Castroville has more than 90 historic buildings and houses, many of which are examples of German-style country cottages.
