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

A Wonderful part of History, It is worth visiting and seeing the history. I was truly pleased that it is open to the public for visitors to see and enjoy. Thank You Also Enjoyed the Gift Shop that was next door. It is worth the visit also.

There is no charge. Stop by and go inside the church to appreciate the beauty of the church. The old smell of the church is the best part of it.

While a rather plain church, this particular site has continuously held a place of worship (usually Catholic) since 1706, the year ABQ was founded. The gift shop in the convent next door is comprehensive and you are sure to find something to commemorate your visit. Looking forward to seeing this church and the adjacent Plaza all decked out with "fioritos"... More

What a beautiful old church. Made me wonder how things used to be there 300 years ago! Easy to find. Went shopping around the plaza after Mass.
