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!

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!

San Felipe is my parish and was built in the 1700. It is gorgeous inside and very peaceful. I always go into the church when I am down there.

This is absolutely the highlight od the old town area of Albuquerque. It is just beautiful to look at, with a lot of mixed history. Fortunately we met a friendly local who told us a lot about the history of the church. The church itself is one of the oldest buildings in the city, standing there from 1793. The original... More

It always amazes me about the beautiful skies that abound when I come to Old Town and see San Felipe de Neri Church. An historic Catholic Church located on the north side of Old Town Plaza, the adobe architecture is inspiring and yet comforting. It was built in 1793 and is considered to be one of the oldest surviving buildings... More

We were in Old Town for the lighting of the Christmas tree and stopped in the church. It's beautiful and made me just want to stay and contemplate the details. We were really lucky because there were vocalists performing- I thought the acoustics were good. Definitely worth a visit.

I lived in Albuquerque as a child and attended this church. It was a wonderful feeling to come back as an adult to discover qualities I'd missed. It has a nurturing reverent quality about it. The feeling -The Spirit of Christ greets you before you even open the door of the church. The people who run the well-stocked large gift... More
