Enjoyed seeing the mission and watching the history of their work. The gift shop was great. Great place to visit. The views were beautiful.

The Mission is so old but you can see that it is well maintained. It is clean and the area looks very peaceful. A must see if you are coming over in Tucson.

The mission is just off the highway and is worth a stop if you have the time. It is not THE reason to be in the area, but it is a nice little "side trip" for you. There is not much to the Spanish Market"...More

18th century Mission, built by the Spanish conquest. Still in use today, as a church for the local people (many of whom are descendants of indigenous people).

Whenever I have company from out of town I always bring them to see this amazing church... Not only can you see a beautiful church buy you can try some local foods made in the traditional way.

We had not a planned to visit but glad we did as it was a highlight of our Tucson visit. The beautiful old mission is still an active church.

I followed the mission trail in San Antonio several years ago and when I learned there was a mission in Tucson I wanted to visit. It is a stunning mission to say the least. There is a native American working on restoring the painted walls...More

Not a planned visit but saw it as we drove down the highway. A beautiful and old mission church that stands out against the browns of the desert. Be sure to check out the native Americans selling wares in the parking lot.

Highlight of our day. Stayed long enough to visit everything, and took some time to meditate. Old. Well kept. Would highly recommend a visit.

Thank Sherman A

sorry to be seeing this question so late! We happened to have been there around Easter, and did see a mass being performed. Maybe around 2.

Please just go there its so great. Watch the video of how the restoration started and where it's going too in the museum. Then walk around inside respectfully and enjoy. No special attire needed. It's jaw dropping... More
