San Felipe is a beautiful, historic church right on the plaza in old town. It is extremely photogenic, and has a nice gift shop (for religious items) situated unobtrusively next to it.

There is a small park situated in the middle of the square whuch provides benches, shade, and a gazebo where you can watch live performances Friday through Sunday! The church is also active for Sunday services! Old Town is a great place to... More

So much history in this church. The beautiful retablo wood work is typical of the Spanish artwork. Truly amazing.

SAN FELIPE DE NERI CHURCH is located in the heart of the Old Town Albuquerque. Very beautiful small church that was built in 1706 and then rebuilt in 1793. At the time that we visited the town was quite and we had the church to ourselves. No fee to go inside and you can take pictures.

This is a beautiful, very old Spanish Catholic Church built in the 1600's. It is constantly in use, so quiet and respect should be shown upon entering. Anyone can light a candle if wishing to do so, and anyone is welcome to sit down to pray, look around, or meditate.

We walked in and saw the most beautiful artwork. This is still being used as a church and I was amazed at how well kept it is.

This church is a beautiful example of southwest architecture. It is small but well decorated. You feel like you are back in the 19th century. Avery nice church to visit if not interested in the Catholic faith. We have been going to Albuquerque for the last 18 years for the Balloon fiesta and always spend time in Old Town and... More

This is the oldest church in Albuquerque. There are plaques describing the history for history buffs. Great place to worship and to meditate while visiting Old Town.
