Unfortunately, the church was under renovation and was closed when we were visiting. We were only able to see it from the outside, which was lovely. We will have to return some time when it is open to the public.

Lovely old church; very thick walls; in the center of the Old Plaza. Very friendly caretaker and pretty garden. The convent next door was closed in the late afternoon during our visit.

I was married here many moons ago so I'm a bit partial to this church. Its small but special and feels very spiritual. It is the oldest church is Albuquerque. Be sure to visit the Church's gift shop. Very interesting gifts.

San Felipe de Neri Church was a part of Albuquerque from its incorporation as a City in 1704. It is the most prominent feature on the Plaza in Old Town. It is beautiful both outside and inside.

Quaint little church, very dark inside, would have been nice if the church had staff to offer more information.

It is a classic adobe, Spanish mission era church set in old town. A must see stop for tourists and you can also attend mass on Sundays. It correctly maintains the ambiance of 1700s including seats and pews that elicit a form of penance.

The lady in the tree is so neat. The beauty of the church is really worth seeing. Unfortunately, we did not make it inside. (Just too much to see.) Spending a full day in Old Town is a blast. So much to take pictures of!

If you like history, you should visit this church. It's at Old Town Albuquerque. Outside and in just a great piece of history to see!
