A beautifully maintained 100 plus year old church still very active. Don't miss sculpture garden depicting crucifiction of Christ outside nor the small display case of relics to the side of altar.

This is a beautiful church. When you go to visit choose a time when services aren't going on so you can go on inside and view everything inside. There are a lot of things to view outside too.

The cathedral is a must see. The interior design and artwork are beautiful and simplistic. Stroll around the gardens and take time to view the paintings that are on exhibit. There is a beautiful, colorful statue of a young female native american near the entrance to the basilica. Stop and read the plaque.

From May to October 2017 you can visit the church and view almost 100 gorgeous reproductions of artworks from Madrid's El Prado museum. This is a unique presentation not to be missed!

The history and beauty of the church is quite amazing. We don't really have that many things in the United States that are this old. It is still used as a place of worship, so reverence is required. The kids got a little bored, so if you have little ones, just make it a brief stop.

The Chapel is lovely inside and reminded me of some smaller chapels I have seen in Europe. Does not cost to get in, of course donation is nice. It is located in a central part of town not far from the plaza. Definitely a must see stop while in Santa Fe. Parking in town is EXPENSIVE and lots fill quickly!... More

We arrived 10 minutes before closing and the hostess could not have been more welcoming, gracious and charming. This church is a must see in Santa Fe. I lit candles for my late wife and mother. It gave me peace...
