Very interesting basilica. The history behind the basilica, the number of times it was destroyed and rebuilt are impressive. The grounds are impeccably maintained. The interior is beautiful and photography is allowed. Well worth the time.

Pretty amazing Cathedral! It is incredible both internally and externally. The ringing of the bells brought magic in the square.

I go every time I visit Santa Fe and love this beautiful Cathedral more and more every time. It is used in movies all the time, but beyond that, it's just gorgeous to visit.

Beautiful church with incredible character. I wasn't planning on stopping here but had a little time. It was worth it. I would go back again for a little solitude.

Even though I am of a different religion, I always like walking into different houses of worship. This cathedral is amazing and is definitely worth taking 10 minutes to walk through. Along the side is a little park area to just sit amongst the trees and relax.

The Cathedral has beautiful statues and paintings that are so fitting to the Santa Fe experience. By all means, visit the Stations of the Cross in the adjoining garden area. The sculptures associated with the Stations are exquisite.

A visit to this church is a Santa Fe must. Very historic sight in the city. Quiet escape from the busy outside.

The Cathedral is worth stopping by. It's a beautiful example of Romanesque inspired architecture. Volunteers were very helpful in providing information and answering questions. The oldest Madonna in the US resides here in the chapel. Beautiful altarpieces and architecture!
