Friendship Cities

What is a Friendship City?

Friendship City Agreements are usually the first step on the road to becoming a Sister City. Whereas Sister City relationships require approval from both cities' respective city councils, Friendship City Agreements can be made between Mayors.

In addition to our Friendship Cities, San Antonio maintains eleven official Sister City relationships.
