Indoor and outdoor walk around a historical site. Learned about the Presidio from a great tour guide a Tumacacori. OK self guided tour.

A very good presentation of southern AZ history at a reasonable price. There is some outdoor walking involved around the area.

Tour of Presidio is interesting and central to early Spanish influence in AZ. Near the Presidio is the Anza trail, which is a pleasant walking trail that once stretched from Nogales, AZ to San Francisco, CA, in Spanish colonial times. And, of course, don't miss the historic town of Tubac which is now home to many excellent artists and artisans. Enjoy!

Before you get exhausted trailing around all the identical Arts and Crafts shops visit the Presidio first. You will enjoy it.
Delightful pleasant staff who are very helpful. Watch the brief video and then take a leisurely tour around the sight. Visit the underground excavation room - fascinating.
If the “Cavalcade of History” art exhibit is still on (possibly only March) this is a must to see.
This is a very relaxing site to visit, guided tours are available or stroll around the site at your own pace.
Visit the school house and read the 'behaviour rules' amazing.
A simply enjoyable 90 minutes spent in the middle of all the commercialism of Tubac - A Must

The Presido of Tubac gave us a very good insight into the early days of this area. Not only about the early Spanish people but also the native American tribes of the area and the work done by the church. My wife and I took the self directed tour of the Presidio and the pamphlet provided explained in detail a solid basic understanding of the history of the Presidio and the people of the area. I would highly recommend a visit to the Presidio of Tubac.
