Cool Church and Villiage
If you like churches, you’ll probably like this place. Pretty inside and out and there is a little town center there that may have stores and food.
Father Kino was there
Beautiful testament to the southwest and religion. built but still in an unfinished state as a tribute to Father Kino coming to Tucson. It is on the Indian reservation and on Sundays has services...
Refresh your soul with a trip to this beautiful church. The building is being restored and is well kept. The sanctuary itself is breathtaking and is used daily. This is a peaceful place to meditate.
