  • This is one of the major sites of the Texas revolution and site of cold-blooded execution by one nation against another. But no one yelled "Remember Goliad!" And the name of James Fannin is almost for...  more »
  • If you have any interest at all in the history of Texas, a visit to the Presidio La Bahia, in Goliad is a must. Also, known to the Texas separatists as Fort Defiance, this is one of the key locations ...  more »
  • Pretty much the ONLY thing to do in Goliad ( beside the cute main square, which is also a must-see). Great history - although tragic.  more »

  • Exceptional restoration of a very important historical site. Great tie in with the church at Goliad. Just down the road from really nice camping at Goliad state park. Worth a visit to study multiple artifacts and history narrative, along with a beautiful fort restored to exact specs from original drawings that are posted as a display. Local docent present showing Flint lock rifle and actual firing off the rifle. Very exciting.
  • Very interesting piece of Texas history. I prefer going here over the Alamo due to Goliad being more authentic to the original construction and having artifacts actually found on the grounds. Oldest Spanish mission in the US. Oldest colonial fort in the US west of the Mississippi.
  • Well kept state park full of history. The staff is exceptionally friendly, and the mission and grounds are well maintained. Just don't forget the mosquito repellent, especially when going down to the river banks.
  • Wonderful church from colonial times. Museum has good history time line of Texas struggle for independence from Mexico.
  • A must stop for history buffs. They even have a apartment you can rent for the weekend but the wait is about 3 months. Nice selection for books too
