  • It doesn't have the biggest amout of exhibits but it is well worth the admission fee of $4. The church is awesome. You are able to get onto the towers and inside the barracks area.  more »

  • This is the type of place they don't tell you about in history class. If you are familiar with Texas history you have probably heard of the Alamo, but you probably have never heard of Goliad. This mission is part of that critical piece of the story. It is beautifully restored with a very nice museum. I highly recommend watching the video as it really helped me to tie the whole story of Texas independence together. The church was also exceptionally restored. Overall a great place to experience history.
  • This is a great day time excursion with kids of all ages. The fort has sentinel towers, barracks, and an open courtyard. The museum and visitor area is extensive in the history of the local region. It gives a better interpretation of life in the early 1800s in Texas than even the Alamo. There is a active Catholic church on site. This is another favorite spot to come in the morning, eat in the local restaraunt next door, and then head to the old mission site inside the state park half a mile up the road.

  • A great, historic site that for anyone who is a student of history or the Texas Revolution, this is a must-see. 4 stars just because the Presidio and Goliad are pretty far from any major cities. It's definitely a day trip destination though and if there is a reenactment scheduled it warrants an overnight visit. In that case, bring a lawn chair, blanket or whatever so you can sit and watch the festivities. For Texans, this place is hallowed ground and as important as the Alamo shrine.
  • Please, please, please ban people with drones. For those of us trying to steal a quiet moment in the chapel and relax and walk the grounds it is absolutely disrespectful. Call the front desk and complained I was out of luck and had to deal with the noise .
