San Xavier del Bac is a historic Spanish Catholic mission founded in 1692 by Padre Eusebio Kino. Located along the banks of the Santa Cruz river, it’s the oldest European structure in Arizona.
The floor plan of the church resembles the classic Latin cross.
The dome rises 52 ft supported by arches.
San Xavier del Bac is considered by many to be the finest example of Spanish mission architecture in the United States.
Mission San Jose de Tumacacori is a Franciscan mission built in the late 18th century.
This mission was founded by the same missionary who started San Xavier del Bac, Padre Eusebio Kino. He spent 24 years in this area establishing missions and supply routes for New Spain.
First erected in 1757, the church resembles the architectural style of Spanish Colonial.
