  • 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 »


Every mission had a storehouse, or granary, and while most of the second story of Tumacácori's granary had melted away before the National Park Service took over administration of the site, it still requires yearly maintenance and preservation work to keep it in as close to an original condition as possible.
