Fascinating architecture

A must see when you visit Old Town Albuquerque. Beautiful architecture outside and serene interior. Nice example of Spanish influence on New Mexico.

Worth a visit. Open all the time. Small inside. Lovely gardens outside. The architecture is amazing. there is a tree trunk out the front, with a carving inside - amazing. opposite the central square in the old town.

As these old town squares and churches are usually small, touring the actual area doesn't take much time; (it is the shops and eateries that take up most of the time). Take a moment to sit and ponder in one of the church pews taking in your surroundings, it is very relaxing.

This is Catholic Church. The building is more than 200 years old and located on the north side of the old town plaza. It is surrounded with adobe style peripheral walls. Not too big; however looks great.

This is not only a beautiful old church but is very much alive today. We attended the English Sunday mass and it was a very beautiful experience. Catholic or not it is a very interesting way to experience a piece of New Mexico history.

The church is something to see. A Mexican wedding was taking place on one of the days we visited. The groom and men in the wedding party were dressed in traditional Mexican outfits. It was quite the event to see.

I could have stayed there all day - literally. It was one of the highlights of my trip! The shops were very tiny, but I found what I was looking for.

San Felipe Church, located in Old Town Plaza in Albuquerque, has been a focal point of Hispanic culture, religious as well as secular, for more than three centuries. It's a "must see" attraction for a visit to Albuquerque.

For the centuries this church has been in existence, it is quite remarkable at its peaceful beauty! Definitely a place to visit, take pictures! The gift shop is well stocked and a enjoyable experience.
