The mission of Tumacácori sits on 360 acres of Tumacácori National Historical Park and is part of three separate missions. This site is open to the public for a small fee and includes the museum and ruins.

Located on 360 acres of National Historical Park land sits one of three Missions, Mission San Jose de Tumacacori.  It was established by a Jesuit priest by the name of Eusebio Kino in 1691 in a nearby location, which happens to be the oldest Jesuit mission in southern Arizona.  The mission was moved in 1751 to the present location after the Pima rebellion.  Theodore Roosevelt declared Tumacacori a National Monument in 1908 and restoration efforts began after falling into disrepair.  
On your visit you will see the church with some of the original decorations in the interior.  The church, with the exception of the floor and roof, are all original.  Visitors can walk the grounds and see the remains of the priest's residence, a large community area, a large lime kiln, ruins of a cemetery and a mortuary chapel.  There is a visitor center that offers a 15 minute video, a museum and a bookstore.  
Tumacacori is located 45 miles south of Tucson off exit 29 on I-19. The address to the visitor center is 1891 East Frontage Rd.  Tours are available January through March during cooler months and tours to the other ruins in the Park are available by appointment only.  Check the park website or call 520.377.5060, for current availability and tours.
