The Ancient Town In Arizona That’s Loaded With Fascinating History

Tubac is the oldest European settlement in Arizona, dating to 1752. The neighboring town of Tumacácori-Carmen features Spanish missions that were erected even earlier — as far back as 1691! Come visit to take a journey through the ages, including a museum with 2,000 years of impeccably preserved history spanning the entire spectrum of Southwest culture.
