“The oldest intact European structure in Arizona!”

A National Historic Landmark, San Xavier Mission was founded as a Catholic mission by Father Eusebio Kino in 1692. Construction of the current church began in 1783 and was completed in 1797. The oldest intact European structure in Arizona, the church's interior is filled with marvelous original statuary and mural paintings. It is a place where visitors can truly step back in time and enter an authentic 18th Century space.The church retains its original purpose of ministering to the religious needs of its parishioners. Many claim that the mission is haunted by the ghost of a nun and a small child, both of whom might have died in a fire that once ravaged the mission.

This landmark is absolutely breathtaking. Take a small hike up the hill for the most stunning views.

I highly recommend to anyone.

Cool historical place. Awesome church that has withstood the test of time. Has survived 3 different governments.

Amazing art pieces with a great Last Supper painting.

Don't walk around while Mass in going on.

You can also go up the little hill next to the church and get a 360 view of the area.

Try the Fry Bread on the way out.
