The Presidio Nuestra Señora de Loreto de la Bahía, known more commonly as Presidio La Bahía, or simply La Bahía is a fort constructed by the Spanish Army that became the nucleus of the modern-day city of Goliad, Texas, United States. The current location dates to 1747.

During the Texas Revolution, the presidio was the site of the Battle of Goliad in October 1835, and the Goliad Massacre in March 1836. It was restored in the 1960s and became a National Historic Landmark in 1967. While several adjacent historical sites in Goliad are now part of the Texas state parks system, La Bahía is owned by the Catholic Diocese of Victoria, Texas but operates as public museum.

  • We got a nice tour of the Presideo and learned a lot. Only a few parts of the original buildings remain and the rest is a reproduction. Still interesting and worth a stop. It is a Texas History...

  • We had been to San Antonio before on a family trip one year, and decided to come to goliad next trip(me and the wife love history). Pretty cool to be in such an intact fort with that much history, and the chapel was amazing as well. The staff was nice as well, hope our next trip is as amazing
  • We spent the night at The Quarters in early September 2021 and had an amazing overnight investigation! It may have been warm out that night, but we had plenty of company.....of the apparition kind. Lots of captured EVPs including one that kept breathing and following one of our Misfits. Growling and canon fire sounds highlighted the very early morning in the courtyard, along with HUGE spiders and frogs! A must visit for overnighters!
