One of Louisiana's most intriguing state historic sites, Los Adaes is the remains of a Spanish Fort, garrisoned in the 1700s. It was once the capital of Texas and the scene of unique cooperation among French, Spanish and Indians. Today, it remains as a tribute to and a reflection of these distinct cultural influences in Louisiana. It has been found to contain important archaeoligical resources of Indian, French and Spanish occupation. Exhibits and an archaeological laboratory introduce visitors to a fascinating era of history.
