San Felipe De Neri Church is the "anchor" of Old Town Plaza in Albuquerque. It's simple but beautiful, both inside and out. Well-worth seeing!

A must see to get the flavor of the area. Do not miss the gift shop that has a great deal of items for those interested in Saints and religious items.

Great old church. Very minimalist. Lots of folks worshipping in the afternoon. Modest both in style and in art.

This church is the oldest in Albuquerque and well worth visiting. The tromps l'oeille is excellent (you'd think everything was real marble)! The church store is much better than most and has an extensive collection of art and books. The people that run it are...More

Your question is not at all clear to me. Weight restrictions for what? Riders? Riding what I wonder? I think this question may be posted in the wrong venue. Good luck finding the information you are seeking.
