Interesting. Easy to take the self guided tour and read about the history at the various spots indicated on the map. Helpful park ranger - remember to by your Golden Eagle pass if oner 62 yrs old. Currently $10, soon to be $80!
This lovely mission church, alas in ruins, is a well-maintained historical site that evokes the past. Spanish colonial missions were known for their astonishingly creative churches that sparkle with frescoes and sculptures, some of which survive here. Although not as spectacular as San Xavier del Bac down the road, this is well worth the journey. The area takes about an... 更多
Tumacacori National Historical Park preserves a 200+ year old Spanish mission placed in the Santa Cruz river valley south of Tucson, Arizona.

Try to get one of the free scheduled tours. Very good local history. Good info on both natives but the Spanish activities as well. Would definitely do again.

We enjoyed touring the inspiring remains of the mission and learning about its fascinating and tumultuous history. The grounds are interesting to explore and for photographers, they are numerous great opportunities with the surrounding mountains as well as the mission itself.

The staff was very helpful, small gift shop, interesting museum, charming mission and easy, mostly level walking around the park. Take time to enjoy a... 更多
Great to see how things were way back when. The tortilla and beans freshly made sample was great! They have a intro video, a nice walk around the mission and a nice museu.
I really enjoyed coming here, the history is very interesting and the park is very large and nice. The church itself is very time-worn and aged. The park is there to preserve it, not to restore it, so you can see how damaged it was by time and vandals. The little museum in the park was very small, but it... 更多
