Interaction with Guests

The very oldest part of Tucson was the Presidio, or "lookout", (now called "A" Mountain) for the Apaches, the army, the missionaries, the explorers, the conquistadores, and all who came through the "Old Pueblo". Our place enjoys this perspective of the lookout in the heart of Tucson.
