I brought a picnic lunch and sat on the Old Town Plaza looking toward the church while I ate. After that, I took numerous photos. It's beautiful and I never get tired of thinking about its history and enjoying the sight. This is a unique church and it's worth the visit.

Wife and I just stopped in to look. We were not disappointed. Loved the stained class. History placards were informative. We sometimes forget that the west was settled by the Spanish well before the NE was settled by Euros.

Very pretty church in Old Town. Worth stopping in and looking at. We weren't able to attend mass, but would like to do that.

We were here the week after Easter and all the Easter flowers and decorations were still in place. What a beautiful and serene place to stop for a short rest. Be sure to take the time to read the history of this church.
