I love visiting older churches, so I really enjoyed going here. It is a beautiful church! If you are going to be in the area I highly recommend stopping here!

This lovely church is the oldest church in Albuquerque. It is well maintained, centered in Old Town and has a great gift shop adjacent to the church.

Have toured many Churches, but this one was rather non descript. They only positive thing was the gift shop. There was a gnarled tree "with the Virgin Mary" hidden in it. Very poorly done.

This beautifully restored, historically significant church is a must visit when strolling around Old Town.

Very well-maintained church. It still functions as a local parish. Was interesting to see the artwork around the interior of the building. There is a place to make donations for the building's upkeep.

I would think most travelers will go to old town, so you will see it. You will have seen better churches but it is a nice picture to take. It was sunday when I visited, so I did not go in.

It is a lovely church inside, but the history isn't very interesting. Worth a five- minute look around.
