San Xavier del Bac is an outstanding example of an early (1690s) Spanish mission that is still in use today. It represents Spanish, and early Indian artistic influences and continues to be restored today. The small museum is interesting, but the church is the main draw. Also, the film on its restoration is fascinating, showing how restoration experts from Italy came to San Xavier to not only begin the restoration, but also to teach local Tohono O'odham people how to to do the work and maintain the church.
