This old historic mission, built in 1783, is located south of Tucson in the Arizona desert. It is presently being restored but they still have school and church services. It remains open to visitors also. The first picture shows part of the front of the complex with the re-construction going on in the left tower.

This is a view of the back enclosed court yard where the Monks and Nuns reside and school is held. This area is not open to the public.
