Downtown, Tucson: 38 reviews and 118 photos
Once an open space, this area was within the original Spanish presidio. The plaza was probably named in the Mexican years (1821-1854), when soldiers drilled here. Saddle horses for the troops were stabled along the north side, next to the presidio wall. Houses were built over the site beginning in the 1860's.
Directions: Plaza Militar is at the entrance to the Tucson Museum of Art.
