A National Historic Park, Mission San José de Tumacácori is a historic Spanish mission preserved in its present form by Franciscans in 1828. Mission San Cayetano del Tumacácori was established by Jesuits in 1691 in a different location. After the O’odham rebellion of 1751 the Mission was relocated to the present site on the west side of the Santa Cruz River and renamed; it is here that the first actual church structure was erected. The Mission is located in present-day Tumacácori National Historical Park, and is open to the public daily.
Tumacacori, Arizona is located about 45 miles south of Tucson, just off of I-19.
