Very impressive restoration project. It immerses you in the early days of the Texas Revolution. The 15 minute video is good except it throws out so much information so fast that your head will be spin... read more »

If you like history just a bit, you need to stop here! It will give you a sad and touching feeling of the things that happened herein history!
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.
Very interesting story. The gentleman in the gifts hop had s I'm
What a wonderful experience! We stopped first at the Fannin Battleground in Fannin, Tx. We were pleasantly surprised at how well this area is taken care of. Very nice! Walked the historic downtown of Goliad which is very nice. The presidio La Bahia is wonderful! The chapel is beautiful! You will be impressed with the information if you take the time to read it. A very enjoyable experience.
$4 admission, original chapel. Only intact mission / fort from texas revolution. Worth the trip to see. Especially if your a history buff. It was restored in 1936. I wish it had more artifacts, but cannons are cool. Memorial & la bahia leaves a chill.
