I love walking through and photographing all sorts of churches. I wanted to see this one as it was a more modern style pueblo building. It was not open for a walk through but did take some pretty photos outside.

The only downside was that the building was closed and we could not view the interior but the large adobe structure is worth a few minutes to view and photograph!

Beautiful church! The woodworking, art work and altar were beautiful! We took the city tour and this was a stop on the tour. Worth the $10.

The driver took us out the downtown area to the Cristo Rey Catholic Church and told us a bit about the place, but we didn't get to go inside. Instead, on our way out of town driving back to... More
