El Presidio San Agustin del Tucson was the fort built by the Spanish in 1775 to stake claim to the northern frontier of New Spain. Today, the Presidio San Agustin del Tucson Museum offers an extraordinary glimpse into American Revolutionary-era life for Presidio arrivals, Native Americans, and Territorial period settlers alike. They also stage historical reenactments, celebrations of the Presidio’s founding and Mexican Independence Day (Sept. 16th) along with The Presidio District Experience, a downtown food tour that gives visitors a taste of Tucson’s complex food heritage and the collision of Old and New World ingredients.
