Create an itinerary including San Felipe de Neri Church
Originally constructed by colonial Spanish authorities, San Felipe de Neri Church represents an integral part of the state's cultural heritage and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Visit the European-style church, finished in 1793 to replace an earlier building on the same spot, and admire its construction featuring two bell towers and stout adobe walls. Once inside, notice its understated decor, including a metal ceiling and intricate altar at the front. Take the opportunity to browse the on-site museum's displays of artifacts, which date as far back as the 17th century. As it's still an active church, you can join in on the regularly-held services during your visit.

  • My visit here was memorable, it’s a beautiful church, both inside and out. I viewed the inside of the church during Sunday mass and was absolutely taken aback by the gold detailing and how well preserved everything looked. It’s incredible to know you can attend a mass in a church that’s been in continuous use for 200 years. The outside gardens were in full bloom and well maintained. It’s an experience worth making time for!
  • Such sweet staff at the shop next to the cathedral. Kind to my kids and had some beautiful pieces.
