We visited the Mesilla area on a Saturday mid-day, but were unable to see the inside of the Basilica.

We were truly disappointed that they don't allow visitors into the church. It is lovely to look at from the outside. Maybe they've had problems? I don't know, but disappointing to us. I truly appreciate the history of our country's beautiful houses of worship.

At the time I was a student in New Mexico State University, between 1986 and 1988, had the opportunity of visiting most of the ancient places around Las Cruces. Old Mesilla is a place nobody there can miss in spending a nice time. San Albino...More

This is the only Basilica in southern New Mexico. It is a very beautiful church both inside and out. It is worth a visit if you are in the area.

The Church dominates the square/Plaza. Great time to come here is Day of the Dead. Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) 2017 in United States was 10/31 to 11/02.

Lots of history here. Adjacent to town square in old Mesilla which means you’ll visit many nice shops & maybe a couple restaurants/bars.

San Albino is a quiet respite in the center of the bustling main square of Old Mesilla. The stations of the cross are unusual and worth viewing. This is one of only about 70 designated basilicas in North America. It feels large in comparison to...More

Should you ever stay in Old Mesilla, you will never be able to forget the sound of San Albino's bells. They have been calling this community to worship for ages. The church fairly recently received the distinction of being named a 'basilica" based on its...More
