“Perhaps Tubac’s most famous person was soldier and explorer Capt. Juan Bautista de Anza II. During his tenure there (1760-1776), Anza built the chapel of Santa Gertrudis, the foundations of which lie beneath today’s St. Ann’s Church. Anza’s second expedition to the Pacific coast departed from Tubac October 23, 1775. It included approximately 300 soldiers and colonists, and culminated with the founding of San Francisco.” Tubac Chamber of Commerce.

It’s about a 30-40 minute drive from Tucson and if you have never been (or even if you have), it is a great way to spend an afternoon. The town is built with amazing old-world charm with some of the architecture dating back to the 1700’s.
