PRESIDIO LA BAHIA

Presidio La Bahia is a historic chapel located in La Bahia, Texas. The chapel was used as a fort by Spanish, Mexican, and Texan soldiers in 6 revolutions/wars because of its central location.

Given the name "Our Lady of Loreto," the structure is one of America's oldest buildings. It is the only building in existence that still boasts its original groin vaulted ceiling. Famous artists and sculptors have worked on the structure throughout its life, making it a hub of culture and history.

Over the years, Presidio La Bahia has been the face of many historical events such as signing the First Declaration of Independence of Texas and where Fannin's men stayed before they faced their massacre.

Presidio La Bahia is now a working chapel, a tourist attraction, and is a designated National Historic Landmark.
