We really enjoyed our time at this site, and used it as a beginning spot for a hike on the Anza trail to check out the river nearby (water in Arizona is always a thrill). The staff was very knowledgeable and helpful and the grounds...More

Small but interesting museum, a preserved but not restored chapel. Beautiful setting. From here it's possible to hike down to the river or along the Anza trail.

This national park is not too far from Tucson. The entire property is very well preserved, and well worth the $5 per person. The church is just a ruin these days, but if you close your eyes and use your imagination, you can recreate how...More
