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.

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.

  • A must visit. Impossible to describe the charm of the place. It's beautiful and charming. Very ornate and old. We were impressed. 
  • It's worth a few moments of your time to stop in when you are in Albuquerque's Old Town. The church has been beautifully maintained and is a very active working church today. 
  • The oldest church in Albuquerque dating back to the 1706 with the building built in 1793 A beautiful and peaceful place to visit. You must visit when visiting Old Town. 
  • Every time we visit Albuquerque and Old Town we have to stop by San Felipe de Neri Church. Love the exterior, but the sanctuary is beautiful. When you stand in the sanctuary you can feel the Holy Spirits presence. A must see for everyone. Amazing that it has been there since 1793.
  • Few churches in the US can be thought of as a tourist attraction. This is one of them. A beautiful building. To know your in a place older than the Country it's in. Mind blown.
  • Very beautiful church great architecture and fun place to see. Pretty cool it was built in the 1700's.
  • Beautiful place and a wonderful parish.
  • I fell in love with Jesus all over again at midnight mass! So much holy spirit in this church!
