This place is 402 years old and lovely. Beautiful grounds with a memorial garden out in front. I'm glad I stopped by to see it. It's surrounded by mountains and a great spot to walk to/by.

This is a must see if traveling to Socorro. The Mission has been rebuilt but still has the rustic look and feel of the past.

This little church has been around since the 1600's! It has since and recently been remodeled and is beautiful!! Mass is held every Sunday at 8, 10 and Noon. The music is great and the masses are always full.
