From the relics to the dresses and story of the holy Mary, this cathedral is a work of art. The story of how it was built over the original and then the original was carried out brick by brick is impressive. Stop by and take in the serenity.

Must visit. Open to the public, other than Mass. A nice way to spend a little quiet time among all the hustle.

If you like churches, don't miss this one. The religious artifacts are interesting, and the stained glass windows are beautiful. A restful spot to gather your thoughts.

As others have said, don't miss visiting this church near the plaza. Take a few extra minutes and check out the 'stations of the cross' garden behind the church. The architecture is beautiful and the surrounding gardens are pretty. If you can attend a mass, do so! There is metered parking out front or a pay lot behind the church.... More

Beautiful stained glass and overall architecture. Some sections of the church are quite old. Worth a detour in your visit to Santa Fe.

The Cathedral underwent a major renovation about 4 years ago and it looks beautiful! Plan a visit inside and around the park next door.

The cathedral has beautiful stained class. Definitely worth seeing, but keep in mind that this is a cathedral that is still in use so you may have to come back if services are being offered.

Definitely a must-visit spot while in Santa Fe Plaza. This towering church is beautiful and very peaceful inside. The holy water fountain is absolutely beautiful and very clean and modern. The relics of various religious figures is also very interesting in one corner of the church. This church has quite a bit of history as can be read on the... More
