The first Mission in the region, San Javier was established in 1691. The church, built between 1749 and 1752 by Rev. Father Martin Schmidt, was restored between 1987 and 1992 under the direction of Rev. Father Hans Roth. Uniquely for the missions, the wooden columns supporting the aisle are painted. Of the original structure we can still enjoy the mortuary chapel the presbytery, the patio, the college, and the wooden belfry, from which there is a nice panorama of the village. The first School of Music and a shop where violins, harps and clavichords were produced were established at San Javier.
