AAA Editor Notes
El Presidio de Santa Barbara State Historic Park is at 123 E. Canon Perdido St. Founded April 21, 1782, the Santa Barbara Royal Presidio was the last in a chain of four military fortresses built by the Spanish along the coast of Alta California. Now a state park, El Presidio is the only reconstructed presidio in California. It serves as a living history site and offers a range of programs interpreting the Spanish, Mexican and Native American heritage of Santa Barbara.

Historic buildings within the park include the 1788 El Cuartel, the second-oldest surviving structure in California; the restored Cañedo Adobe; the reconstructed Padre’s Quarters; Chapel; Commandante’s office; Cocina, or kitchen; and the Northeast Corner, which includes the foundations of a two-story observation tower. A video is shown as part of the tour.

Guided tours are available.
