The Old Spanish Missions of Tejas

Texas is home to many historical Spanish Missions and Presidios .  These missions were cultural centers in the days of Tejas.  Many of our missions are well preserved and have weekly services today.  These Spanish missions represent the origins of Texas so we name our single origin chocolate bars after them.  Texas is also blessed with some talented artists who have created beautiful paintings inspired by our Spanish Missions.  Links take you to information about the missions & presidios, and to the artist’s web page.  Enjoy.
