What a beautiful old church. Made me wonder how things used to be there 300 years ago! Easy to find. Went shopping around the plaza after Mass.

In Old Town, the old church is worth a visit, a good photo op; it's unique to the area and right in the middle of all the shops which are fun to look through.

So relaxing, so peaceful, I've never been able to pass up a visit to an old historic church. This one is well kept and beautiful inside and out. Worth stopping in for a cool quiet moment. Enjoyed reading about the church and its history and sitting in the courtyard relaxing after walking around the town. They have a nice little... More

Ultra serene and lovely. And beautifully maintained. The blue Albuquerque sky is the perfect setting for this sanctuary.

It's pretty and historic, but nothing really unusual other than that. I liked the little Guadalupe Chapel in Old Town better - rather unusual. The tourist info center in Old Town told me about it. It is in one of the little alleys.

JMJ This very old, and beautiful church is welcoming to all. Please respect the fact that it is historic but also an active house of worship to God. The Spanish influence makes it as beautiful as it is and as peaceful and refreshing after the hot desert sun. Take time to sit and refresh yourself in God's presence. Afterwards visit... More

Main church on the Plaza in Old Town. It is focal point of the Plaza, old dignified place. The interior is austere, and somewhat disappointing.

We were in old town anyway, so you might as well poke your head in & have a look see. The exterior has that adobe curb appeal & is the oldest building in town. The wife light candles at every church we visit, but this didn't have candles the day we were there.
