We always make it a point to visit the Old Town comprises about ten blocks of historic adobe buildings, which surround Old Town Plaza. (Plazas were a common feature of Spanish colonial towns.) On the plaza's north side stands San Felipe de Neri Church, a Spanish colonial church constructed in the 18th century.

The gift shop in this church is really the only place to pick up souvenirs or other New Mexico/Mexican art. Who knew? We had learned years ago to check gift shops in churches or cathedrals for the less commercial stuff we knew our friends would appreciate We were really surprised here by finding local artisan work and imports from Mexico...

A perfect day to visit the beauty of this church in its glory. There are not many churches built in this manner of history.

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.

We enjoyed the atmosphere of the church and the beauty. It felt very peaceful and we took the time to look around and enjoyed what we saw. A great place to escape your routine.

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.
