Living History: Medicine of the Spanish Colonial Period – Friday, April 12, Noon-3pm
When the Spanish soldiers and their families settled Tubac in 1752, there was no doctor or
surgeon among them. It was the responsibility of the women to treat their family’s physical
complaints and wounds. Medicine was basic and dependent on herbs and plants known for their
healing properties. This living history program features a display of medicinal herbs and plants, and
knowledgeable commentary by an herbalist who will tell visitors how these plants were used by
“curanderas” (healers) to treat illness and injuries. $5 adult, $2 youth 7-13, children free.
