Old Town Artisans


Once the stables of the original Presidio (fort) located in today's Downtown Tucson, Old Town Artisans' shops and galleries offer unique regional, cultural, and contemporary items in a historic building surrounding a beautiful courtyard.

La Cocina Restaurant


Boasting al fresco dining, a beautiful courtyard atmosphere, a rustic Cantina, and live music under the stars, La Cocina's menu  offers something for everyone.

Presidio San Agustín del Tucson


The Presidio Museum is a re-creation of the Tucson Presidio (fort) built in 1775. Visitors travel back in time to learn about life as early Tucsonans would have lived it.  Visitors also have the opportunity to see the archaeological remains of a pit house and experience a 150 year old classic Sonoran Row house. tourist attraction
