The thing to see is the mysteriously build staircase. The rest of the church was typical of other churches.
Be sure and go to this beautiful little chapel. The altar is beautiful and the staircase is amazing. We took several pictures and listed to the narrated information about the chapel. Pictures are welcomed and there is a small fee to enter the chapel.
The architecture, the staircase of course, the whole chapel is awe-inspiring! Come on in- nominal fee but time very well spent. Gift shop- some commercialism here but you may find an interesting item and they have cards and a wide variety of items. A must see- 1 hour or less. Another chapel/church in the immediate area as well.
I have been to the chapel several times and attended a close friend's wedding there. It is really beautiful and the staircase is a marvelous mystery and something to see. It is a jewel in Santa Fe and would be a shame to miss if you visit the city.
Wonderful site to visit in Santa Fe NM. Opens around 11 am, you can bring a camera and there is a gift shop. Be sure to read the story behind the chapel before you go.
Beautiful, small chapel with a lovely staircase. Even if there wasn't a "miracle" story related to the staircase, it would still be quite impressive!
My husband and I attended a Pro Musica Baroque concert here, and we had an opportunity to fully appreciate the beauty of this chapel and its incredible staircase. This chapel is truly an architectural gem in the heart of Santa Fe.

A beautiful side trip for those that want to take in some of Santa Fe's... More
