I'm so glad I was able to see this mission. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to go inside because we were too late. Still it's a beautiful mission that inspired so many beautiful works of art. It's worth a visit if you're in the area.

The church is pretty. Not spectacular, but it's quite pretty. The architecture is nice and the courtyard in front of the entrance is pretty.

This was part of our tour we took on the High Road to Taos. It was a beautiful church made of the true adobe which we were told takes 500 people a week to redo it every single year. We did not go inside but...More

No restrictions were given by our tour guide. Most of the people I saw were in pants, capris or shorts with a respectful top--t-shirt, pull-over, or jacket.

Easy parking at the back of the church (which is the street side) or go around the church (from either side) and park at the front of the church. I know seems confusing but it's not once you're there!
