“Historic Albuquerque church at Old Town”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

This church has quite the history. It's right in Old Town. it still is an active church. Stop in to see it, or to pray. and don't miss the gift shop and courtyard.

“Beautiful, peaceful, historical”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

I loved this church. The front courtyard was so pretty and peaceful, with flowers and little walkways. I also liked the adobe wall around the front courtyard.
Tourists are allowed to go inside the church, and take pictures. There was a sign inside the front entry stating guests are welcome to look around and take pictures, but to be respectful. I took just two quick pictures and then left right away; there were two women praying in the front pews and it seemed disrespectful to be gawking and snapping pictures. There was a group of tourists in the church talking rather loudly, and I thought that was a bit rude.
There's a religiously themed gift shop hooked on to the church; I think it used to be a convent. There's a museum inside the gift shop, but it was closed when we were in the gift shop.
