Beautiful, peaceful and the center of Old Town. This is the only place you should visit. Don't forget the attached gift store. Support the church. Peace

San Felipe de Neri is easily accessible and truly authentic. Many old mission churches are in remote spots and hard to reach. This church is in the middle of Albuquerque, and there are plenty of places to eat and shop within easy walking distance.

Church is over 300-years old. Masses still being celebrated. The grounds provide a hint of what sn early missionary compound nay have been like. Nice gift shop and museum.

The church is on the square in Old Town and is available to people to walk though or to stop and pray. Be aware that people may be praying so please be quiet outside of the doors as well as inside the church. Although this church is magnificent, be sure to ask around for directions to the hidden chapel.

Stop by San Felipe de Neri Church and gift shop (no tax) in ABQ, NM. This simple and beautiful church dates back from 1793 and is one of the oldest surviving building in ABQ, NM.

Lots of history. Talk to the people inside and learn about it. Worth a visit for a calm quiet time to relax and reflect.

The church is absolutely beautiful. It is a must visit if you are in the Old Town area. The church is small but very native to the indian culture. I visited during lenten season and was impressed that the statues are covered with different colored cloths during the season of lent.

I happened by on a rainy morning. Nothing else in Old Town was open, but I was delighted to find the doors of the church unlocked. I spent some quiet time in prayer and sightseeing, then emerged to find the attached gift shop had opened. The proprietor was very warm, welcoming and informative, and gave me a capsule history of...
