The Beautiful and Colorful of Arizona

The State of Arizona has a past beautiful and colorful which can be seen through the historic landmark. Among this magnificent landmark is the mission.

What is the mission? The mission is the structure that was built by Spain's first missionaries or priests to arrive in the area. They housed a missionary who came to Spain to spread the Christian religion in America, and around two or three centuries.

How this mission appears to? Well, many centuries ago, the priest of Spain, particularly a Catholic priest named Father Eusebio Francisco Kino founded over twenty missions in the area called the Pimeria Alta, which means land of India Pimian is now known as Southern United States Arizona and northern Sonora, Mexico. Unfortunately, due to a number of factors, only four of the structure has been left intact and this is the San Xavier del Bac Mission, San José de Tumacacori, San Cayetano de Calabazas, and Los Angeles Santos de Guevavi.

Eusebio Francisco Kino Pastor Who? Father Kino was born in a small village in Segno, Italy on 10 August in 1645. In fact, his parents named him Eusebio Francesco Chini, which is then converted into the Germany version Eusebio Francisco Kino. These changes might be because he studied in Austria, a country where Germany is the national language. He belongs to a rich family and sent to a Jesuit school and later to Hala, near the border with Germany. When he was in his middle teens, he is terminally ill. While he was sick, he promised himself that if he survived the disease, he would become a missionary. After he recovered, he fulfilled his vow and became a priest. He was then assigned to help spread the Christian religion in Mexico in the year 1683. He started building mission across the Pimeria Alta from 1687 until his death in 1711 Sonora.

One of the oldest remaining Mission in Arizona today is the San Xavier del Bac Mission. This is the familiar is called by some as the "White Dove of the Desert" because white facade. It was first built around three centuries ago and still amazingly beautiful and functional. Even today, when it is still in use as a church. Many years later, San José de Tumacacori and Los Angeles Santos de Guevavi both built in 1691, while San Cayetano de Calabazas was built in 1756.
