A very nice place to visit! This place has lots of history about earlier days of Arizona. The church was built in 1822 ~ 200 years ago now. It was made to look like the great Spanish Cathedrals. It even have a baptismal font and the choir loft! At one point they had over 200 people living in the Tumacacori Mission. The park has a nice walk around area and some tables for a little picnic. When I arrive, the place was really quiet and peaceful. I can sit there for hours.
This site was a new experience for me and it was nice to educate myself on the time period and everything that happened at this site. I will say however that it wasn't the most exciting experience to me compared to other National Sites, I felt it lacked things to do that was going to make for a memorable experience. Had I not had the annual national parks pass, I would have been slightly disappointed in the experience I had with a $10 entrance fee which can easily add up with a small family and also going out of my way to make this trip this far South in Arizona. I've been to several other National Sites for free that had more interesting things happening. That being said, the staff were knowledgeable and very friendly, the grounds were well kept, the bathrooms were clean, there were plenty of picnic benches, I am not handicap but the area and landscape seemed fairly accessible, the museum was informative and the video was surprisingly good - a lot of national sites I've been to the video is very outdated and boring. To sum it up, this is not a site I will buy souvenirs from though I give it 5 stars because everyone involved has done a good job and I did not have a bad experience.
