Mission San Xavier del Bac

"White Dove of the Desert"

Should Not Be Missed

In the vast desert just outside Tucson, Arizona, one would not expect to find a beautiful church.

Following the signs from the highway directs you toward Mission San Xavier (pronounced as "hauv-e-air") del Bac, you approach this majestic "white dove of the desert" (as it is affectionately called). It is truly an awesome experience. The sheer size and bright color against a blue sky and the tan colors of the desert make San Xavier a striking sight.

Enjoy photos, history and a tour of this great Tucson treasure. Our web site is unable to answer questions, relay messages or provide additional information, as we are not associated with the Mission.
