These 15 Churches in Arizona Will Leave You Absolutely Speechless
When settlers began arriving in the areas now known as Arizona in the 16th century, one of the major imports they brought along with them to the land and indigenous peoples was their religion. Over the centuries plenty of struggles happened and, as recent news has shown, continue to occur. However, today we’re going to look at the beauty each of these buildings brings to their congregation and the community at large. Most are open for tours so be sure to check them out if you’re in the area.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
