This is a history lovers paradise. I love the Alamo, but to be able to see a fort/mission with all its walls still standing is fantastic.

This was an interesting piece of Texas history. The grounds and chapel were lovely to tour and nicely interpreted and maintained. This should be of interest to anyone interested in history or Texas history.

If you love history, this is for you. My husband and I greatly enjoyed our visit. It gave us a better understanding and appreciation for our great Texas forefathers.
If you're at all interested in Texas history, and more specifically its founding, this is a must see stop. It has been carefully preserved after its restoration and contains many unique artifacts that were discovered on site during the restoration. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable.

You have to physically experience La Bahia to help understand the history of Texas, to include the struggles that Fannin's men experienced in their quest for independence.
Going back in time, beautiful paintings and pictures. The door of death is intriguing. The trails around the place are easy to maneuver.
Excellent displays, very emotional to visit. The grounds are very solemn, nice gift shop and the movie was interesting! Be sure to watch it before walking around.
It is such an amazing place! We spent about an hour exploring the grounds and museum. Well worth the entry fee (they give veteran discount too, very nice of them).
