Beautiful and Historic San Xavier Mission in Tucson, Arizona

4 years ago

I visited the beautiful San Xavier Mission located about 9 miles south of Tucson, Arizona on the Tohono O`odham nation`s reservation. This beautifully restored Catholic mission is still an active church. It is the oldest intact European structure in Arizona. The interior walls are covered with beautifully restored artwork, mural, and sculptures. The exterior of the mission has been restored after an earthquake and lightning strike. The restoration of this historic mission is an on-going process. Walking into to this mission was like stepping back in time. The small garden was peaceful, and filled with regional shrubs like blooming cactus. Fortunately, we were able to join a tour of this mission. If you want to step back in time, visit the beautiful San Xavier Mission. There was no admission fee only the price of your time.
