Tumacacori National Historical Park

Tumacácori National Monument protects the ruins of three, seventeenth-century missions, Tumacácori, Calabazas, and Guevavi. Mission San José de Tumacácori was established in January 1691. Today it is fifty miles south of Tucson, Arizona and eighteen miles north of the international border with Mexico at Nogales, Arizona.

The physical remains of the mission church San Jose de Tumacácori and the associated cemetery, mortuary, mortuary chapel, and portions of the convento area are included in a self-guided walking tour. 

There are adobe structures are on all three sites, with a visitor center located at Tumacácori.  These missions are among the many established in the Pimería Alta by Father Kino and other Jesuits, and later expanded upon by Franciscan missionaries.

Father Eusebio Francisco Kino was born in 1645 to minor Italian nobility.  He vowed to become a priest during a serious illness when he was 18.
