Presidio San Agustín del Tucsón was a presidio (colonial Spanish fort) located within Tucson, Arizona, United States. The original fortress was built by Spanish soldiers during the 18th century and was the founding structure of what became the city of Tucson. After the American arrival in 1846, the original walls were dismantled, with the last section torn down in 1918. A reconstruction of the northeast corner of the fort was completed in 2007 following an archaeological excavation that located the fort's northeast tower.

  • An incredible recreation of the original presidio in the heart of downtown. The docents were knowledgeable and friendly. If you want to learn more about Tucson's diverse and fascinating history, you can't miss a trip to the presidio.
  • I had the pleasure of bringing almost 90 people here from out of town (they were here for a business conference). We split the group up and each group was assigned a very knowledgeable docent. They took their groups around the grounds of the museum and filled them with so much interesting information, that I think these (mostly Canadian) guests now know more about Tucson than most Tucsonans!
