Beautiful Church

This is actually a minor basilica... beautifully renovated with a stunning altar and stain glass windows. Definitely worth the visit!

The church outside is beautiful. The doors were locked so we couldn't go inside. You can walk the stations of the cross around the church. The church is near local shops and restaurants.

At least stop and see the gift shops and the old adobe homes which are so real to the area. We drove around just to see the old buildings after we were all shopped out.

A short respite at an historic church in Mesilla- very peaceful. Interesting bit of history. Well worth the stop. Gift shop was closed which was disappointing as we had heard it was worth visiting.

The Basilica of San Albino is an absolutely beautiful church, both inside and out. I believe everyone visiting Las Cruces/Mesilla owes it to themselves to see this historic destination.

The little town was full of history. You can literally walk around the town in about 10 minutes or less. We were there a little... More

The church is one of 2000 minor basilicas in the world. Each was designated so by the Pope. We went inside and immediately met our docent who was friendly and knowledgable. We heard stories of the statuary. He told us about the writing for the stations of the cross being in Spanish and German.. We heard history of the village... More
