When we visited SFe, we went to the cathedral. We take a seat, had a break for 15 Minutes. A great experience, because inside it was very silent, a good place for a short meditation. But also, to look inside a little bit around. It's worth, to give more than five minutes to this Cathedral. If you go out, don't miss to visit the charming litte park aside.

Full of history and beautiful stained glass. Nice benches in front to sit and contemplate. Includes a gift shop. They could make some money if they sold miniature replicas of the stained glass for hanging at home.

We attended Sunday morning mass at 8:00am which is in Spanish. This is a beautiful church to visit. The history of the church dates back 1610. It was designated a Basilica in 2005.

The heart of Santa Fe - the beautiful cathedral one block off the plaza - is a must stop for your Santa Fe visit.

The building and grounds are lovely, however, it should be a church first & I felt that there was too much asking for $`s and too much "tourist" going on,lost the church feel
