Visited the presidio many years ago while in college. Returned again in July 2012 with family. I love this place and knowing about all the history that occurred here and the tragic ending to Fannin's men (buried in the historical site behind the Presidio). Nice little movie presentation in the visitor center along with many historial artifacts on display. The chapel very peaceful. The site is not crowded at all, so it allows one to walk around the property and quietly contemplate all the history.
The presidio is owned by the Catholic diocese and mass is said each Sunday at 5:00.
Reasonalble admission: $4.00 for adults, $1 for children 12 and an under.
Since this place is out in the countryside, it has the feel of perhaps what it might have been like many years ago. Equal in importance to the Alamo in Texas history, though not always as appreciated.
Be sure to check out their website and find out when they do live reenactments. We did not visit at this time, but it looks like something interesting to see if you are passing by when they do a presentation.
