The church is in Laguna Pueblo. Photography is prohibited on the Pueblos, as usually is drawing. Visitors need to show respect and do some research before visiting any Pueblo as some are much more conservative than others. The best times to visit are during traditinal dances, feast days and related activities.

After it was built, then the people asked for a priest to be sent. It's a warm and peaceful place and one can feel the love, even as the pueblo people continue to maintain it with... More
