Tumacacori National Historical Park

1891 East Frontage Road

Tumacacori National Historical Park  protects three Spanish colonial mission ruins in southern Arizona: Tumacacori Guevavi, and Calabazas. The adobe structures are on three sites, with a visitor center at Tumacacori These missions are among more than twenty established in the Pimería Alta by Father Kino and other Jesuits, and later expanded upon by Franciscan missionaries.Tumacácori National Historical Park is in the mesquite highlands where temperatures are five to ten degrees cooler than Tucson or Phoenix. Visitation to this moderate climate is pleasurable during any season of the year.Each year the park offers a unique celebration that reenacts High Mass the way it would have been held at the Tumacácori Mission church. To make the event more fun, you are invited to wear Spanish style clothing that resembles those worn at the turn of the century

This place is a wonderful piece of Arizona history. When you show up here give yourself at least two hours to really see everything. In addition to the actual mission site there is a small museum. The staff that work there are super friendly and knowledgeable. Don't miss this place!

July 2018. Very nice concept of Junior Ranger program for middle school ages that should be the way in every national park. Very helpful volunteers and park Rangers. Would have been 5star but there are some amount of bugs and flies in the park.

What a wonderful site! The staff are all very helpful and nice. There is a well stocked bookstore as well. Admission is only $5 per person and it's "free" if you have a national parks pass. The grounds a beautiful, well marked and we'll maintained. There are sidewalks between all the major areas so those in wheelchairs will have no problems getting around.

Amazing historical site. It has a very relaxing atmosphere with a small but nice garden. It is also educational and has tons of info about the church located there. The church itself is decaying because it's hundreds of years old and got abandoned. it's good that is being conserved the way it is. Admission is a small fee, but it's great for spending a nice morning there. The gift shop has interesting items as well as books with knowledge on the subject. I plan on visiting again.
