“Terrible audio ruins a beautiful church”
Reviewed 25 April 2012

You have to pay $3 to go into the famous chapel now. For your money you are bombarded with a terrible audio description. It used to be a beautiful place.

“definitely worth seeing”
Reviewed 25 April 2012

The spiral staircase built without nails or dowels was amazing, and the chapel has a very spiritual feel to it. I sat in this chapel for a while and just enjoyed just being there. The altar and statues were beautiful also.

“A Spiritual Ambience”
Reviewed 24 April 2012

When I come here, I know that I am home. Serenity, peace, spirit, and most of all....history of New Mexico. I like to come and listen to the walls and the famous staircase. This church has seen many people come through its doors over many many years. If you are interested in history, this is a must see for you.

“Amazing Stairs”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

A must see simply to be amazed by the fact that a full set of spiral stairs could be erected without a single nail! An architectural wonder to say the least. Definately worth a stop on your list of highlights in Santa Fe.
