Free. 7 a.m.–5 p.m. Allow 2–3 hours.Once part of a chain of churches that stretched from northern Mexico to the western U.S. This brilliant white structure is considered the “Sistine Chapel of North America” for the intricate paintings on the walls and ceiling. It is still a Catholic parish serving the Tohono O’odham community for whom it was established in the late 1600s.

Beautiful Mission

Mission is beautiful. Not a large mission, but lovely inside with wonderful carvings of figures. Doing some restoration in courtyard. Worthwhile watching the video
