  • 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.
  • It's a cute and interesting part of Texas History. If you happen to be in the area id definitely recommend dropping by and walking the grounds. Youll get a feel of what it was like to live in the fort so many years ago. They have Mass on Sunday's, barring bad weather or what have you. And in March they have reenactments of a battle that was fought there and colonial living. Which is something i wish i could attend. Anyways, check it out and see what you think.
  • Great historical view of Spanish influence on Texas. Call ahead for groups, this is a bit expensive for teens or students. This historical site is not managed ironically by the state, so expect to pay to visit. La Bahia has so much historical significance on Texas History several artifacts on display.
  • 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. Called the front desk and complained and I was told i was out of luck and had to deal with the noise .
  • Awesome old missiom, comparable to the Alamo, but not as popular. The mission itself is worth checking out. The museum isn't spectacular.
