I would think most travelers will go to old town, so you will see it. You will have seen better churches but it is a nice picture to take. It was sunday when I visited, so I did not go in.

It is a lovely church inside, but the history isn't very interesting. Worth a five- minute look around.

It was such a beautiful place and is still in use, the gardens are kept up so well. They allowed pictures to be taken

Beautiful historic church. You are going to be in Old Town anyway, right? Well, you have to pop in there. I try not to take too many photos in active churches, but it is very photogenic.

This attractive church is located right on the Plaza of the Albuquerque Historic District. Worth visiting for its architecture! Dating back to 1793, it is one of the oldest surviving buildings in the city.

The church is centrally located in Old Town. It's simple but beautiful. Really perfect for the location and it's humble beginnings. Worth the look around.

The church was founded when Old Town Albuquerque was founded, so it is quite old even though it is still a functioning house of worship.

This is a nice place to visit if you are into history. I am not... but I am a fan of historic churches and this is one of them. Very strong history and used to attend this church when I lived in ABQ.

This IS the heart of Albuquerque and Old Town. Whether you love churches, Mission churches, religious, a fan of classic mission architecture or just a historical buff, San Felipe Neri is a stop.
