This is a lovely Catholic church in the center of Old Town Albuquerque. The church is operational, holding regular services, but is still open to the public. There is no fee to visit. This is oldest church in Albuquerque, and has been continously holding Masses since 1706. During the Christmas season, the entire outside of the church and its grounds... More

Come at Christmas with all the luminaries covering the church plus the Plaza. Nice assortment of businesses with very friendly people. Delicious restaurants in Old Town.

This church is across the street from a plaza in Old Town. The church is beautiful with a lot of sculptures and religious paintings. You can see a sculpture of Madonna and Child in one of the windows of the church from the outside. Very beautiful church!

In the Old Town Plaza of Albuquerque sit a church that is a wonder to behold. It stand in grace and is lovingly maintained with wonderful carvings and gardens.

Beautiful historic church in the middle of old town Albuquerque. The old town is a very nice place to stroll around after visiting the church. If you want some authentic New Mexican food after visiting old town, head to Garcia's Cafe on Central Ave just east of old town.

Very few things truly awe my 9 y/o son, but walking inside the Church did! It's beautiful inside and out. The bell rang while we were there and just brought history to our minds. It's easy to see the work put into the sanctuary over the years. A must do if you're in Old Town!!

Built in 1700 & renovated in 1993 is worth a visit. Gives you a feel of Mexican decor and architecture. It is in the the old town area and is surrounded by local art and souvenir shop.

It is always enjoyable to go down to Old Town, Albuquerque to walk around the stores. Looking for native American and Spanish art and Jewelry. As a Christian I enjoy going through the old Spanish church and looking at the art work. Dinner around the plaza is also something else we do in Old Town.

Visiting and reading about the 300 year history of the church was interesting. We enjoyed the visit very much.
