The church is centrally located in Old Town. It's simple but beautiful. Really perfect for the location and it's humble beginnings. Worth the look around.

The church was founded when Old Town Albuquerque was founded, so it is quite old even though it is still a functioning house of worship. It is fascinating to imagine SIster Blandina there after counseling Billy the Kid or Zubulon Pike kept captive in the priest's house when Spain still held the territory and spying was illegal. There is church parking in the back of San Felipe, but if yuo plan to see the rest of Old Town, it is probably best to use the public parking areas by the museum in case the church as a mass or funeral planned and parishoners want to park there.

This is a nice place to visit if you are into history. I am not... but I am a fan of historic churches and this is one of them. Very strong history and used to attend this church when I lived in ABQ.

This IS the heart of Albuquerque and Old Town. Whether you love churches, Mission churches, religious, a fan of classic mission architecture or just a historical buff, San Felipe Neri is a stop.

I've been if the church just to pay my respects, like this time, but also to attend Mass when in town or just to see part of history. The congregation is alive, well and thriving. They are always updating and renovating the church since it is the heart and soul of Old Town.

Stop in, see what Mission Churches were about and you'll get a feel for how all Southwest towns founded by the Spanish started. Throw them a few dollars in their donation fund. they can always use the favor.

Right in the heart of Old Town, this gem of a church is a must see. Walk inside and take a trip back in time. Whether you are religious or not, walk in, sit down, and feel a peaceful calm envelope you. A beautiful structure.
