I enjoy historical churches and this one was no exception. It was very pretty inside and quite peaceful. It was nice to be able to say some prayers for a safe trip while sitting in this beautiful church.

This was a church we'd heard a lot about prior to our family vacation to New Mexico. While in Old Town, we visited the church. It was very pretty.

We attended mass while visiting the area. The church has great history. It is small, the people are friendly, pretty alter. The deacon gave a wonderful homily. There is not a lot of parking. We found something about a block away. If you are looking for a place to attend mass or have a love for Catholic Churches and history... More

Visiting this historic church is a must if you are visiting old town Albuquerque. We attended mass here on a Sunday and loved it. I would recommend lunch at one of the nearby restaurant after your visit.

The church is gorgeous, but I wouldn't go out of my way unless you are close by Old Town. The church is located beside a their gift shop that use to be the Nun's convent.

I attended a Sunday morning Mass in this lovely setting. The church was an integral part of the original settlement of Albuquerque and still is. The grounds and gardens are also very pretty and this should be on everyone's must see list when visiting Albuquerque. The location in Old Town allows for shopping, dining, and sightseeing within easy walking distance... More

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.
