#3 of 6 in Historic Sites in Albuquerque
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.

  • Very pretty church on the square in Old Town. Interesting history. Also a nice gift shop attached. Grounds are nice for pictures.  more »
  • It is not possible to come downtown and not to go to this place. It is a landmark existence. There are many restaurants and souvenir shops around.

  • Had a little extra time before a flight and we drove down to see Old Albuquerque- great idea! This place is so beautiful. Do walk around here and get a feel for New Mexico.
  • I didn’t stay long. Just popped in while my family was shopping. But it was a beautiful place. It was interesting to imagine mass 300 years ago in the same place. Very peaceful and lovely.
