“Very Beautiful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2012

A very beautiful church. I'm not catholic but I certainly appreciated the beauty of this true example of what a church should be. You will enjoy your visit and don't forget a donation after viewing.

“Beautiful Cathedral”

The Christmas mass was very memorable. The church was decorated beautifully. It reminded me of being a child. The history behind the building is interesting.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

Great art and architecture. The paintings are gorgeous, as are the grounds. They recognize some of the Native American influences,starting with the statue in front. A great esthetic experience and a great place to practice faith.

“beautiful historical building”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

I don't understand how anyone can give this less than 5/5. It is so beautiful. I sometimes just go in to sit on a back pew and appreciate the beauty. Your trip to Santa Fe is not complete until you experience this cathedral!

“Beautiful Church”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

I'm not religious but I love to visit different churches around the world, the architectural design aspects of churches always inspires me. This church is quite lovely and free! Many photos ops inside and outside areas. If you have the time, go inside and take a look!
