Ysleta Mission (Mission de Corpus Christi de la Ysleta) was constructed in 1744 in part to serve the Tigua Indian community which had fled New Mexico during the Pueblo Revolt. The church was partially destroyed during a disastrous fire in 1907, but was reconstructed with the addition of a three-story tower incorporating Mission Revival decorations.

The Ysleta Mission is located at 131 S. Zaragosa Rd. near its junction with U.S. 800, south of El Paso. Spanish services are offered Monday-Friday at 7:00am and 6:00pm; the church is open to the pubic in the morning before 6:00am. Call 915-859-9848 for further information. The Ysleta Mission has also been documented by the Historic American Buildings Survey. The Ysleta Mission is featured in the National Park Service El Camino Real de Tierra Adentro National Historic Trail Travel Itinerary.
