Depending on how religious you are, you could be in and out in 10 minutes. It is a beautiful old church. The light blue and gold details will leave and impression on you. Worth the time. And it's free so why not.

This church is beautiful, interesting and most definitely worth a visit while you are in Albuquerque. It's located right in the middle of old town, so easy to visit while you are there.

It is easy to imagine the Church as a safe haven and Missionary location during westward... More

I stop here every time I visit Albuquerque. The architecture is simply iconic for the Southwest. If you can't get to Chimayo, then go here. The gift shop next door has a lot of nice things too.

Very interesting in terms of both history and architecture. Located in the Old Town area of Albuquerque, across from the square with bandstand that was a part of early Spanish towns in New Mexico.

Beautiful church. There are people buried in the courtyard. Be respectful of church activities as this is an active parish.
