This church is a must for everyone visiting Santa Fe, just beautiful inside. The grounds around the church just as beautiful.

Saturday evening , the church fills up fast so go early for a pew up front. The music, homily, and fellowship was excellent. Enjoy the peace and quite for a few minutes.

It's just off the town square, beautifully lit at night and a joy to visit during the day. Churches aren't normally my thing, but I fell in love with this one.

Large church with richly decorated and solemn interior. There was a guide who answered questions about the church and Sta. Fe, who made the visit worthwhile.

A must see. Worth spending unhurried time inside and out, especially at the meditation maze and in the chapels.

Although you need to work your visit around other happenings (christenings, funerals, etc), this is an interesting building with many interesting areas, windows and carvings. I found it to be a very peaceful and resting place to visit.
