On Historic Old Mesilla Plaza...beautiful...after mass you can go to Josaphina's, La Posta, Cafe de Mesilla, or on Sunday, brunch at the Double Eagle. Sheer heaven...
While we waited for the village shops to open, we admired the exterior of the church. I am not too much into churches, though I am frequently curious about Catholic churches' interiors, especially old ones. My companion was directed to the church office by the gardener outside, and she returned with the church assistant who graciously opened the church, which... More
I got to admire the outside of this church during the afternoon we spent in Old Mesilla. It's a pretty church, and fits in so well with the surroundings of the plaza and quaint shops. I didn't go inside, but walked in the courtyard. There's a very picturesque statue in front of the church. The side yard has memorial stones... More

This is a gorgeous building, worth seeing while in the area. It is not of the same vintage as the other 1850s buildings surrounding Mesilla Plaza, dating instead from the early 20th century, but the adobe style is authentic and the building fits right in.

One of the pleasures of being catholic is the ability to go to mass everywhere you go. Here is a church with its roots deep in the 19th century. It opens to the public from 1 to 3 in the afternoons to look around, but nothing beats going to mass here in this historic building.
