We liked the sculptures outside more than anything. The museum was very clean and well organized. Staff were also very friendly and helpful.

You enter this from the Old Town square and it suddenly becomes very quiet and calming. What a lovely church with an enduring history and place in Old Town and New Mexico. Take a few minutes to spend here.

Center of of Old Town which is free and a quiet place for reflection or prayer. Very nice architecture is well worth the 15 or so minute pause from all the commercialism in the area

Nice place to stop and take in a little history of Albuquerque. The church is located on the square in the Old Town section of the city. There are shops around the old square that sell some fantastic jewelry and the perquisite t-shirts. Look in at the church, walk around the inside and admire the altar. The church is 200... More

Right on the Old Town square. Many wonderful sights and shops to wander through. You may recognize some of it from movies (Wild Hogs) and some TV shows that are filmed there.

I discovered this little gem while out for a morning walk from a local hotel. It is a traditional Spanish Catholic Church. It reminds me a lot of the missions in California.

This is an absolutely stunning church. Beautiful inside and out. There is no charge to go in and see the beautiful inside. The outside is just gorgeous. It is worth it to stop and visit this church. Take a few minutes to walk around it and even sit inside for a bit. It was really peaceful.

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
