If you need to find something to do for a few minutes, stop here and check out this active parish National Historic Landmark made of adobe. Read the paragraph of history and move on. There's supposed to be a mystery painting (that costs $ to...More

You cannot see this easily from the street. We sort of knew where it was but drove past first time. Quaint old folk church. It’s surrounded by a variety of Pueblo homes. Wished I would have been allowed to take pictures inside. Simply beautiful.

Unfortunately, as I came here on a Sunday, there were church services, and so I was not allowed to take any interior photographs. I was allowed to look though, and it was really beautiful inside. It’s very well-maintained, which is amazing considering it’s a 250...More

Do not miss this stop along the way into Taos whether you are catholic or not. You will feel the sense of history and enjoy the architecture at the very least. It is one of the most photographed icons. Do ask to see the mystery...More

No restrictions were given by our tour guide. Most of the people I saw were in pants, capris or shorts with a respectful top--t-shirt, pull-over, or jacket.

Easy parking at the back of the church (which is the street side) or go around the church (from either side) and park at the front of the church. I know seems confusing but it's not once you're there!
