    We were here on "living history" day, and it was fascinating. The volunteers were very knowledgeable about the crafts they were displaying, like weapons and textiles. My favorite part was the food - fresh bread, tortillas, and butter. Wow - simple, but great. The canon demonstration is not to be missed, and I took some pleasure in the fact that it set off car alarms because its power.

    The is the fort that replaces the Tubac Presido as the Spanish move north. Only a small part has been restored, but they have done an excellent job. The docent who gave us a tour was a descendant of a soldier stationed at the fort. The hours are limited and the parking is sparse. Worth the visit though.

    Everyone who lives in or visits Tucson should stop in at the Presidio. This is where European history began in southern Arizona. In 1775 when New Spain (Mexico) ruled Arizona they built this fort to protect settlers. The Presidio San Agustin del Tucson Museum is a small reconstruction of what was once an eleven acre fortress. This was the northern most fort in their chain of Presidios. The second Saturday of every month is the best day to visit and see all the volunteers reenacting Spanish life, arts, and crafts of the era. Great gift shop and history displays. At the Presidio, you can also pick up a copy of The Turquoise Trail historical walking tour map of downtown Tucson. Don't miss it!
