I missed this church earlier during my visit to Santa Fe, knew I had to see it but passed by without knowing it. Went back to see it on my way to Canyon Road to take some photos but didn't go inside. It's right next to the Oldest house so make sure not to miss that.

Was closed Monday when I tried to enter. Looks adobe but the adobe is covered. Looks modest. Easiest to get there on foot. It is nice to stay in a resort-y area over Sunday night and Monday when the crowds disappear but the downside is some places close.

It aviods all the touristy stuff and is just what it's always been, a grand old mission with the history right before your eyes.

The best of the 3 churches in Santa Fe. Modest, but beautiful. A "must see" if you love churches.

We weren't able to go inside because it was closed but the structure of the building was nice and they had a picture posted on the mission door showing the inside of the church. It's right up the street from the Loretto Chapel and close to all the shops downtown
