  • Anza Trail Impassable in Areas

    Due to a large flood event, sections of the Anza Trail between the mission grounds and Tubac are impassable to both hikers and horses. Visitors may use the trail north to the first river crossing, but travel beyond that point is not recommended.

  • Pet Policy

    In compliance with the Code of Federal Regulations and Superintendent's Compendium, Tumacácori prohibits pets from all government buildings and the mission grounds. More »

Lime Kiln

The lime kiln, where limestone rocks were fired for conversion to lime plaster, is like all the other structures at Tumacácori National Historical Park - it requires constant maintenance by the Park preservation crew to keep it from deteriorating. It even requires lime plaster to preserve it from moisture.
