Details

E on Turquoise Trail Map: From the corner of McCormick and 13th St., you can catch a glimpse of St. Augustine Cathedral. Begun in 1896, this Spanish Colonial Revival architecture features a magnificent sandstone facade that has an unusual tribute to local flora and fauna featuring a saguaro, yucca, horned lizard and various cacti. Housed inside, near the north wall, is one of the original bells from the Spanish-era Presidio San Agustin del Tucson (Stop #1 on the Trail.) Note that this “St. Augustine” is spelled with a “u”, unlike the original St. Agustin for which the Presidio was named.
