This is part of Old Town and is right on the town square. Smallish old church built in the Mission style. Interesting architecture.

This lovely church is the oldest church in Albuquerque. It is well maintained, centered in Old Town and has a great gift shop adjacent to the church.

Have toured many Churches, but this one was rather non descript. They only positive thing was the gift shop. There was a gnarled tree "with the Virgin Mary" hidden in it. Very poorly done.
