San Xavier Del Bac - Review

The Mission San Xavier del Bac is the oldest preserved European structure in Arizona. The church was founded in late 17th century but was completely constructed by the late 18th century. The architecture of the church along with its intricate interiors including mural art, statues and its classic clay brick, stone and lime mortar structure, makes it’s a fine example of classic Spanish Colonial buildings seen in the United States.

Influence of Baroque style of architecture- curtained displays, false doors and pristine marbling, all add to its beauty.

San Xavier Del Bac, Tucson Reviews

  • Unique classic mission. Everything is old. They are preserving and restoring a lot of it. If you attend Catholic Mass and are traveling through the area, I highly suggest catching mass here. The singing is unique. Very friendly when offering each other the sign of peace. English & Spanish mass times are slated.

  • Beautiful working church with a grand history. Currently being restored. Interesting to see how the missionaries incorporated important local iconography into their own to make conversion easier and more,comfortable for the native people.

  • Truly a beautiful and amazing place to see! Had to go twice to see all of it and I'm still not sure we have seen it all. The story is amazing and the tour is so helpful but then you will want to walk back threw the church on your own to read and truly see more! It's breathtakingly beautiful.... Bring lots of water and sunscreen if you plan on walking the grounds aswell as the church. The restaurant is small but the food is so worth the wait if it's busy..the shops and shop workers are nice as well. The staff is very helpful and willing to answer any questions you may have.

  • It is a beautiful, old sparkling white church that attracts you even from afar. It is the 17th-century San Xavier del Bac Church in Tucson, Arizona. This immaculate white Mission mixes European, Mexican and Native American styles in its overall appearance and feel. Seeing this beautiful edifice in the middle of a desert is impressive, to say the least.

  • The church is beautiful and peaceful. The church is small. We spent about one hour at the church. We bought and lit the candles to pay the respect to the church. The area is well maintained. There were small shops in the front of the church. The decorations inside are unique and nice.
