A Good Fit For Any Visitor

Located about an hour south of Tucson and only about fifteen minutes north of Nogales, Tumacácori National Historical Park makes for an easy daytrip from most southern Arizona locations. A quick trip through the mission ruins makes a 30-minute visit possible. Joining a guided tour, walking a bit of the Anza Trail, or exploring the depths of information in the museum can keep a visitor busy for a few hours.
