The Tubac Presidio State Historic Park is a state historic site preserving the ruins of the Spanish Presidio San Ignacio de Tubac in Tubac, Arizona.

Built as a Spanish expeditionary town and settlement, Tubac was a former Pima Indian village used by Spanish colonists to develop the area. After about twenty years of colonization, the Pimas staged an uprising that destroyed most of Tubac. After a year, the Pimas surrendered and the Presidio San Ignacio de Tubac was built to discourage more rebellions and protect the settlers from Apache raids and attacks. The town is also known as the staging point of Juan Bautista de Anza?s expedition that established the presidio and mission in what is now known San Francisco.
