Beautiful cathedral

We didn't get to go inside the cathedral because we arrived to Santa Fe late in the evening. The Cathedral on the outside is beautiful.

What a beautiful cathedral in the heart of the old city. There was a vibrant hum in the city when we visited.

The cathedral is worth a visit to see the restoration of the building. The interior is beautiful including the painted detail and the stained glass windows. The services are always rich with emphasis on music .

Santa Fe, New Mexico is one of my favorite places to visit! It offers lots of places to see and great places to eat too! While visiting there, be sure to stop in and see the St. Francis Cathedral, it is beautiful!

This was a lot of firsts for my family and myself. We had never visited the inside of a Catholic church before and were taken aback by the architecture.

Interesting from both a religious and architectural standpoint. The statue of St. Francis in the front of the Church was most unusual in that the saint is portrayed with a dog by his side. The stained glass "Rose Window" is quite remarkable. The depiction of Christ's crucifixion in the La Conquistadora Chapel is very graphic. The visit to the cathedral... More

Just a beautiful cathedral! the statue of Kateri Tekakwitha is very moving. It's hard to believe that the cathedral is as old as it is and still functioning.

This is a special place. Been to a lot of cathedrals/basilicas / churches around the US and Europe St. Francis seems to be a working church for the local people that has a lot of history, beautiful grounds and interesting relics. A great place to explore, sit and contemplate.

The grounds are replete with historical information regarding Santa Fe. Religious art abounds both inside and in the area surrounding the church.
