Photographer's Dream

I can see why Georgie O'Keefe painted this church and its clean lines. A feast for the eye. It is a photographers dream. Very peaceful.

The church is a quick stop but worth it. Very old with a beautiful interior. Great story of how it came to be. Santa Fe had some seriously old attractions.

The church is hardly noticeable from the road. Once you arrive it us immediately recognisable from paintings. It us simple, elegant and attractive. Photography inside is banned. You can ask at the gift shop to see the secret painting. The side seen from the road is simple and is different to the pretty front ( actually facing away) worth a... More

We wanted to see this place due to its connection with Georgia O'Keeffe who had painted it a few times. Gorgeous adobe church - the real thing in that the parishioners have to re-plaster it on an annual basis. Great reredos painted by the same guy who did the one in Chimayo.

The church is an architectural beauty. It is southwestern architecture at its best! Best times to visit are morning around 9 am and late afternoon around 5. The shadows and lighting for great photography are best then.

Very nice church in a very interesting town. We were in winter and the church with all the snow around looks great.

It's not often you get to visit a beautiful church like this and have it all too yourself. The church was beautifully decorated for Easter with spring flowers everywhere.

When we travel we see a lot of churches. This was our fifth on this trip. This is a large version of Spanish-style architecture, in contrast to the more classic churches in Santa Fe (Cathedral Basilica of Saint Francis of Assisi and Loretta Chapel). In fact, it's probably much more like the early 18th century ruins of the convento at... More
