Great stop in Old Town

The church is very beautiful with a sense of peace. You could spend twenty minutes looking at the gift shop and inside the church.

It's a great little church and worth seeing, especially if you are Catholic or haven't seen an Adobe Catholic Church before. However, it is very similar to other Adobe Catholic Churches in New Mexico.

The church is a typical old Southwest Church but it was built like a fortress. Thick walls, high windows. There are beautiful statues and the whole thing is well preserved. Don't miss the tree carving on the corner of the square.

This is one of the places on my road trip that I was anticipating visiting. Seems odd to think a Catholic Church would be high on my must see list but when you realize it is the oldest church in the U.S…pretty amazing. It was founded in 1706 and serviced the area until 1792 when it collapsed. The church was... More

It is old but a font of history. Gift shop nice but lacking and could have more local stuff - not so much from mexico or China. If I want Mexico I would go to Mexico.

To sit in this little church was so soul stirring. As we sat in the church looking around it was just so peaceful and calming. There is a little store attached that was ran by some nuns. Such a beautiful place. You must see!

This church is hundreds of years old, yet it can bring peace to all people. The noise in the plaza outside is shut off, allowing the person inside the silence to meditate and/or pray.

Historic and lovely church. We walked the grounds and went in, as it happens, as the church was getting ready for a service. So we sat inside for a few minutes and enjoyed the singing and music, the beautiful alter and a bit of sanctuary.
