The church is an architectural beauty. It is southwestern architecture at its best! Best times to visit are morning around 9 am and late afternoon around 5. The shadows and lighting for great photography are best then.

Very nice church in a very interesting town. We were in winter and the church with all the snow around looks great.

It's not often you get to visit a beautiful church like this and have it all too yourself. The church was beautifully decorated for Easter with spring flowers everywhere.

We didn't spend long her but took some great photos of the outside of this church. We went inside but photography is prohibited in there. It is a typical old adobe Catholic Church.

Easy parking at the back of the church (which is the street side) or go around the church (from either side) and park at the front of the church. I know seems confusing but it's not once you're there!
