Put on your sneakers, grab an umbrella, and head to Mission Dolores for a 1-hour guided tour! Situated on the eastern edge of El Camino Real de los Tejas, Mission Dolores was the cultural crossroads between Spanish Texas and French Louisiana as the Spanish, French, and Ayish survived on the isolated 18th century frontier. Visitors will explore the museum, which showcases numerous colonial-era artifacts, and the original mission site from 1721-1773, which has a segment of El Camino Real still preserved. Tours are offered at 1pm and 3pm, rain or shine. Mission Dolores State Historic Site is located within walking distance of the downtown square in San Augustine, about ½ mile south on Hwy 147.
