Surprising contrast to the Mission's exterior ~

The serene, cool white exterior of Mission San Xavier del Bac that was displayed in yesterday's posting does not prepare you for the riot of deep rich color and ornate carvings that decorate the interior! Considerable restoration has been going on at the Mission for many years ~ the interior colors are so vibrant!
