Took some out of town visitors to see Tubac. We hadn't been in many years and I forgot just how interesting this place is. We all love learning about the history so everyone found it interesting.

Great restoration. We especially enjoyed getting to see the underground foundations and excavations. This is a good place to visit if you are interested in archeology. They have a number of interesting pieces in the on site museum as well.

Thank you Shanna. The site was excavated in the 1970s and has been making more history ever since.

Nice little town with several stores with nice handcrafted Mexican artifacts. Were comfy shoes take water and enjoy. I don't recommend taking young kids, it's more of a location for couples to browse and shop. Definitely nice stop to visit. Ask me any question!
