This old Church is beautiful and worth the trip to Old town. There is a carving in a tree hundreds of years old. There are outside jewelry sellers and great restaurants and shops

Sweet little church restored to its former glory with lots of history to share. Be sure to stroll around the grounds, and don't miss the carving in the tree trunk in the front. There is a museum attached with entrance on the side porch which was closed when we were there.

Beautiful building with a commanding presence in Albuquerque's Old Town. It infuses the area with a special Spanish colonial character, like tying the present to the XVIII century.

Right in the center of Old Town right on the Square. After wandering the stores and restaurants what better place is there then San Felipe de Neri. The cool interior is a wonderful place to decompress. There also a Gift Shop attached in the old Convent Building that carries Religious Articles made by local artists.

This was one of my favorite places to see while touring Old Town. Constructed in 1793, it is one of the oldest buildings in Albuquerque. There's also a small museum on the side that offers some history on the church.

Interesting and beautiful. Pretty courtyard adjacent to town square and right in the middle of shops, restaurants, and local artisans.

Great location and worth just strolling through the front garden if you don't have time to see the church or visit the shop.

This Old Town Spanish-style Catholic Church commanded a great location and invited visitors by it's beauty and grounds. We only took a quick ppek in, but I would love to attend a service here, and I no longer practice Catholicism. It is a gem in this sparkling, sun-drenched city.

The San Felipe de Neri Church is one of the oldest, most continuously used structures in the United States. It is lovely, peaceful, and worth the time it takes to stop and reflect on both history and God's presence in this country. Visit the gift shop, too. Lots of lovely hand-made, quality items for shoppers.

First of all, there is nothing quirky about Albuquerque, except maybe its spelling. It was named after a cleric from Spain during the colonial era of 1600 New Spain. The town is so very pretty and compact that its like being in one of Disneyland's parks, ie Frontier land. Taking a walking tour at one's own pace is one way... More
