A beautiful Church, with an exceptional religious article and book gift shop. Don't miss the Virgin Mary carved into the tree trunk on the southeast corner of the perimeter of the grounds.

We were in Albuquerque, NM for a tour of the state. Walked to Old Town and stopped at the Church. Wandered into the gift shop attached to Church 10 minutes before they were to close. Best place to purchase wonderful New Mexican and religious art and it was soooo reasonable.

My family and I attended Mass here during our summer vacation a few weeks ago. The Church is beautiful inside and out. The parishioners and priest were very welcoming.

If you like historic churches, you'll love this one. San Felipe de Neri anchors the plaza at Old Town, watching over it like a friendly sentinel. If you retreat from the tourist mania into the church, you'll be immersed in a lovely, tranquil, contemplative atmosphere and gorgeous religious architecture and statuary. It is still an active church, not just a... More

We occasionally like to visit San Felipe de Neri for Sunday Mass, usually we time it with a desire to dine in Old Town. The pastor there is terrific, Fr. Andy. A vibrant Catholic community and beautifully historic. Parking can be difficult, but hey, it's Old Town and there are plenty of paid parking spots. One little warning for Catholic... More

The church is quite small, but historically significant and lovely inside. Their gift shop is worth a visit, even just for a look.

It has survived and still flourishes in Old Town, Albuquerque. The architecture is that built by the Spanish and maintained to this day. Masses are... More

This is a beautiful church and when you are inside the hustle and bustle of the tourism right outside of it's door disappears. It is very quiet and serene. Take a couple of minutes to meditate and reflect.

"Be still and know that I am God" - absolutely the thing to do whether outside around this historic church in the courtyards or inside, sitting in a pew. It is simplistically and beautifully decorated inside, and the landscaping around is very native and gorgeous.
