This old church is amazing to see. Just the fact that it is still standing is amazing. it is lovely and any restoration that has been done has not taken away from the original structure. It is worth going a little out of your way...More

The parking lot was so full, people were having to back out, no easy way to drive through. Under construction or renovation currently so we saw cranes. It's a beautiful church, so I've heard, we could only view from the parking lot. We'll have to...More

It was not open when we visited but a great place for photography. Lots of pigeons. Fairly easy to find. Amusing that there is a bar next door.

Worth the stop for the history. The thick adobe walls and the tree trunk beams within are memorable enough to make this worth the stop.

Is a very simple church, with historic value and all, but be aware of the staff trying to sell their "magic" painting view..... a big scam all together!

I can see why Georgie O'Keefe painted this church and its clean lines. A feast for the eye. It is a photographers dream. Very peaceful.

The church is a quick stop but worth it. Very old with a beautiful interior. Great story of how it came to be. Santa Fe had some seriously old attractions.

Easy parking at the back of the church (which is the street side) or go around the church (from either side) and park at the front of the church. I know seems confusing but it's not once you're there!
