This old church is a valley treasure. We happened to visit when a docent was there and she was so knowledgeable.

We were in Old Mesilla on Saturday and Sunday. Very beautiful old church. A must see. They have a huge parking lot for the church, plus public parking lot also. Church was busy Sunday.

We've visited the outside a couple of times, but never got to see the inside until this time. Beautiful stained glass windows are the perfect.

We visited the Mesilla area on a Saturday mid-day, but were unable to see the inside of the Basilica.

We were truly disappointed that they don't allow visitors into the church. It is lovely to look at from the outside. Maybe they've had problems? I don't know, but disappointing to us. I truly appreciate the history of our country's beautiful houses of worship.

This is the only Basilica in southern New Mexico. It is a very beautiful church both inside and out. It is worth a visit if you are in the area.

The Church dominates the square/Plaza. Great time to come here is Day of the Dead. Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) 2017 in United States was 10/31 to 11/02.

Lots of history here. Adjacent to town square in old Mesilla which means you’ll visit many nice shops & maybe a couple restaurants/bars.
