The church and courtyard were beautiful!! Great history also, I really liked learning about it. It was a little awkward though to be there as a tourist (looking around, taking pics, etc) when there were people there praying. Maybe I'm just too self-conscious since it is an attraction, but it's also a church--so be prepared to be very respectful and... More

A Wonderful part of History, It is worth visiting and seeing the history. I was truly pleased that it is open to the public for visitors to see and enjoy. Thank You Also Enjoyed the Gift Shop that was next door. It is worth the visit also.

There is no charge. Stop by and go inside the church to appreciate the beauty of the church. The old smell of the church is the best part of it.

While a rather plain church, this particular site has continuously held a place of worship (usually Catholic) since 1706, the year ABQ was founded. The gift shop in the convent next door is comprehensive and you are sure to find something to commemorate your visit. Looking forward to seeing this church and the adjacent Plaza all decked out with "fioritos"... More

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.
