  • Hidden in the pueblo of Zuni is a true gem, the Old Zuni Mission The church was established in 1630, which makes it one of the oldest churches in the US. Inside there are incredible Zuni murals. Today, the only way to access this unbelievable site is to take a guided tour out of the visitor center. Make sure to purchase a photo pass to take pictures outside, pictures inside are not allowed.
  • The Old Zuni Mission Church is Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe (NOT de la Candelaria). Also, the review below translated from Spanish into English is not representative of the Zuni people, culture, religion and persistence as the largest Pueblo community in New Mexico.
