"Mission San Xavier del Bac was finished in 1797 making it the oldest European structure in Arizona. Located just south of Tucson, it is the spiritual center of the Tohono O'odham people and draws thousands of pilgrims every year." -Ed

 

Mission San Xavier del Bac is a historic Spanish Catholic mission located about 10 miles (16 km) south of downtown Tucson, Arizona, on the Tohono O’odham San Xavier Indian Reservation. The mission was named in 1692 by Padre Eusebio Kino for a pioneering Christian missionary and co-founder of the Society of Jesus (Jesuit Order), Francis Xavier. The mission is also known as the “place where the water appears”, as there were once natural springs in the area.[3] The Santa Cruz River, which now runs only part of the year, is also nearby.
