This Historic Site is the only shrine in the United States dedicated to the soul of a sinner buried in unconsecrated ground. It is affectionately called "El Tiradito" -- the Castaway. The many legends about the shrine's origin all involve a tragic triangle love affair in the early 1870s. The mysterious powers of El Tiradito are still an important part of local Mexican lore and culture. This site is a Tucson Historical Site and it is also on the National Register of Historic Places.
