This is a gorgeous Catholic Church with a long and rich history. It is definitely worth a visit if you are in the old section of Santa Fe. The alter is beautiful, and the statue of Mary dates to the 1600s.

You are given a nice pamphlet with history of the church. There is a nice gift shop and friendly docent. Inside is very beautiful and worth stopping by. I could hear distant religious singing coming from inside somewhere which made it special.

Nice example of a cathedral of the period in New Mexico, but not otherwise special. It is easy to visit while in downtown Santa Fe.

It is lovely to see the Spanish and Southwest influences on what is a mostly traditional Catholic church. Definitely not the largest church I have been in, but still worth a visit.

Well, worth the stop to see inside this peaceful and beautiful space. See the spaces off the main church. The grounds are worth a stroll. A welcome stop in the busy area around the Plaza. I was not comfortable rating a church.......

One of my favorite places to visit when in Santa Fe. During this last time, I was walking up to snap a picture and a wedding was coming out at the same time. I teared up with how beautiful the setting was!!

Very close to Drury Plaza hotel and the La Fonda. When we were there it featured an outdoor display of many paintings from the Prado musuem in Madrid.

This was a beautiful chapel right off the plaza. The architecture is comparable to the small chapels in England. It's worth a visit!
