  • 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.
  • because it's awesome!
  • Beautiful place and a wonderful parish.
