Visit to Mission San Xavier Del Bac

Today we visited one of the historical sites near Tucson, Arizona. The Mission San Xavier Del Bac. Below is a plaque detailing more information about the Mission.

It is quite a large building and has a big courtyard behind the Mission.

The entry is very ornate.

Inside the entry are a few exhibits.

These are some vestments similar to those worn by some of the Fathers.

From the nave looking into the sanctuary. A docent was describing some of the details.

Below is a view of part of the sanctuary.

A closer view of the sanctuary.

Here are the other two sides of the sanctuary. The first features a statue of Jesus.

The second has a statue of Mary.

This is of the ceiling of the sanctuary.

We hope this gives a good representation of the Mission. It is very ornate. Should you find yourself in the Tucson area it is well worth a visit.
