A beautiful white structure, still in restoration process, though, the San Xavier del Bac Mission is beautiful in its white simplicity, but you are taken away by the colorful frescoes inside.

With a small museum and an amazing courtyard, cacti garden and mortuary chapel, the Mission is a place to visit, or stop by on your way on the San Xavier Road. Just pay attention no to disturb if you arrive during a mass.

Address:
1950 W San Xavier Rd, Tucson, AZ 85746, USA

Price:
Museum is free, donations accepted.

Opening Hours:
Every day: 7am-5pm.
