Visit San Xavier Mission


Mission Tours

With the permission of the Church, the Patronato San Xavier is pleased to offer visitors free docent-led tours of the Mission San Xavier several times a day, Monday through Saturday. Our docents are community volunteers trained in the history, architecture, and culture of the Mission and its surroundings, as well as the exterior restoration and interior conservation work of the Patronato. Each tour is approximately 45 minutes, begins at the museum entrance, and requires no advance registration.
