  • I was very pleased with my visit to the Presidio la Bahia. As a former history teacher, I am always looking for ways to improve my understanding of Texas history, and the Presidio provided that experience. I will recommend this visit to all those interested in the Spanish colonial period, the Mexican Revolution and the Texas War for Independence.
  • As a native of San Antonio, my family and I ventured out to Goliad to see Mission Espiritu Santo and Presidio La Bahia for a day trip. Both of these facilities are just as nice if not nicer than any of the Missions in San Antonio. I highly recommend anyone who loves learning the history of our country and Texas to make the trip out to the Mission and Presidio in Goliad.
  • Well maintained grounds and the museum was very well done and informative
  • If you're a Texan you've got to visit the Presidio La Bahia in Goliad, TX! As they said in 1836: 'Remember Goliad'! So much history here!
  • If you love Texas and Texas history, this is a must see place to go. 2X as many people were slaughtered here by Santa Ana's men than were killed at the Alamo. This was restored in 1936 to it's 1836 glory. I went 12/9/15 and it was very reverent and very solemn. This is where Fannin died, asking he not be shot in the face, his stuff go to his family and that he get a Christian burial. He got none of those things, but instead, got shot in the face, the soldiers stole his stuff and he, and many others, were heaped onto funeral pyres and burned. The chapel is beautiful and they say it is haunted. The two suits of armor at the gift shop across the street are cool and dont miss the barracks. A def. must see It is owned by the Catholic Diocese of Victoria and the chapel was very, very reverent. They ask for awesome silence It reminded me of how solemn the Alamo used to be when the Daughters of the Republic of Texas ran it.
