“Terrific Music”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

The Basilica Cathedral of St, Francis of Assisi in downtown Santa Fe is an experience not to be missed. The history of the church is intimately intertwined with the history of the town. The interior and the exterior offer wonderful opportunities for photographs and the tourist flock to the church for this opportunity. The best thing to do, however, is to attend one of the Sunday services because the warmth of the parishioners is evident and the music is divine.

“Spectacular Without A Doubt”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

The doors to this historical church are open most of the time and you are also welcome to attend the regularly scheduled masses. The acoustics in this place are fantastic, so if there is a mass with music, you are in for a really nice experience.

“Worth a prayer”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Worth a walk-by and stop in for a prayer but would not rate it as any spectacular must see. I like to visit Catholic churches to lite a candle and give thanks for all I have in life and that was worth the visit.
