The hand carved Christ is the center piece of this spiritual meeting place. Entering the grounds feel alive and the Cathedral itself is always buzzing with prayer, sanctity, and curious travelers.

Gorgeous interior, wonderful choir, and the homily excellent, meaningful and well presented. Liked the inclusion of Spanish into the Mass which was basically in English. If you have the chance to attend Mass here don't hesitate.

One block off the plaza, it's worth going inside. No charge. Enjoyed walking around inside. Nice stained glass.

This cathedral has a prominent setting in Santa Fe. It is very picturesque and worth a visit. The history is as interesting as the architecture. The stained glass is beautiful too.

Gorgeous place on the outside. Nice on the inside. Stained glass lit up was really pretty. Statuary obviously done by local artists.

Not a big church and very fast to look around but to have a good idea of the area you could pass by to visit it.

We ended up getting a personal tour, which greatly added to the experience. I am not Catholic, but felt it was worth a visit, due to its history.
