Although really cold outside this day it was a pleasure to see this well preserved example nestled in the midst of Albuquerque. Give it a look you will not be disappointed. Some great local art shops are also in the area too.

It's located in the heart of old town Albuquerque. It's a quaint ,old, Catholic Church. I just stopped by to say a quick prayer and give thanks. It was nice to step back and have a little quiet reflection during my drive cross-country.

Youngest son married there. Great old world ambiance. San Felilpe was known for his sense of humor and the church is a happy experience.

The San Felipe de Neri Church dates back to the early 1700s and has long been a part of Albuquerque's history. The church is worth visiting if you are in Old Town, but keep in mind that it still actively functions as a church.

The Church stands at the edge of the plaza in Old town, contributing to the ambiance and peacefulness of the area. While there, one of the very friendly staff stopped and chatted with us for a while and talked about the history of the church at length.

I'm not Catholic or religious but have found this place a great place to meditate during lunch time. It is reminiscent of many older churches in the Northeastern part of the USA.

The inside feels like a 1800's church, I could imagine women with mantillas and well dressed men for the Sunday mass.

You can go inside and take pictures. There is a gift store. They do have a tiny room to exhibits a few things. Not meant to be touched. Nothing wow!

Visited while on a tour. Nice church, but we wouldn't suggest spending a lot of time there. There was an interesting carving in a tree trunk in the back of the church.

It's a good quick walk through while in old town, but not worth a special trip. We learned on the Abq Trolley Tour that the tree stump in the corner with the Virgin Mary in it was carved with a butter knife.
