Tubac Where Art and History Meet
Tubac is a historic destination for the arts, known for its beautiful skies, surrounding mountain ranges, and abundant wildlife. The Tubac Golf Resort is within walking distance to the village filled with more than 100 eclectic shops, art galleries, and studios. Situated in the old town in a charming complex of adobe brick buildings, the school is the ideal place to ponder the beauty that surrounds the town in splashes of color and light. It is truly the village where art and history meet.
It’s a historic destination in itself with its distinctive architecture and alluring patios. The Griffin family built the plaza in the 1950s, modeled on the sketch of Tubac’s original presidio (Spanish fort) by author J. Ross Browne, who visited in the mid-1850s. It has served as a post office and restaurant before eventually becoming a haven for painters, sculptors, and other artists. Its location across the street and north of the Presidio State Historic Park is also the entry to Old Town Tubac.
