Enjoyed visiting the church. An enormous structure in the middle of Old Town. Personally, I wouldn't miss it if I was in Old Town. I wouldn't come to Old Town just for the church. It's a fifteen minute stop, max, but worth the time if you're there. You sort of can't miss it anyway. Show some respect, it's still a... More

Beautiful little church, well maintained, just like I remembered it from the 1970's! On the north end of the old town plaza. Such a gem.

The church was quite interesting, as it was built in the 1700's....liked the atmosphere.....you can sit in a pew and wonder how many thousands of people worshipped (and still do) here......there is an adjacent gift shop also.

Nice (small) grounds, and perfect for an after dinner stroll while in Old Town. This mission church is a remnant of Spanish occupation, and is somewhat typical of the period.

A beautiful mission style church. We were not disappointed we stopped in. While there you need to visit the little gift shop. The people there are the friendliest people we ever met.

We visited this church while walking the Old Town. The building dates from the 1700s, and was built by the Franciscans. Would have liked more details on its history while we were there. The interior is unremarkable to see, but it the church itself is a beautiful adobe structure that anchors one side of the old town plaza. In front... More

Not only is the exterior architecture interesting - along with it's history, but the inside has been very well maintained. The interior is on the small side, but impressive in a very simple way. It was a pleasure to pause here for several minutes.

This church had the great architecture of all the other churches in New Mexico. The old Spanish Style. Love the look of it and the beautiful flower filled courtyard nearby. Quite and peaceful.

Based on other reviews, I expected to see more of the history from this Church as this was billed as one of the oldest. When we visited, it felt like any other church and we were expecting more about the history. The exterior is more in-line with what I would expect from buildings in NM.

The church is nice, the surroundings of the church, the little park with music performance area beautiful. In the winter around Christmas are the Christmas lights, paper bags with real candles, an attraction.
