Tumacácori National Historic Park

Tumacácori National Historic Park Review

Encompassing mission ruins, the church of San Jose de Tumacacori,and a portion of the Anza Historic Trail, Tumacácori National Historic Park became a national monument in 1908. Guided tours of the beautiful church and grounds are available daily October through March, and information on both the mission and the historic trail is available at the visitor center. A small museum displays some of the mission's artifacts, and sometimes fresh tortillas are made on a wood-fire stove in the courtyard. In addition to a costumed historical high mass held in October, creative educational programs, such as full-moon tours, bird walks, and a Junior Ranger Program, are offered January through March (call to check schedule). An annual fiesta the first weekend of December has arts and crafts and food booths.
