A beautiful church both inside and out and well worth a visit. It is located on the main plaza in Rancho de Taos and is a fine example of Spanish Colonial architecture and yet very unique.

The shear scope and mass of the adobe built up over time is impressive. If you are a fan of Ansel Adams or New Mexico history, this is a great stop

Beautiful church made famous by Georgia O'Keeffe and Ansel Adams. There is a painting done by Henri Ault called, "Shadow of the Cross," that you can pay to see. Although it looks like a regular painting, when the light is turned off, it is suppose...More

Before arriving, I pulled up images of both artists' work, prepping my asethetic eye. While I will never, ever, remotely be in their league, the exterior lines of the church are so innovative, stark, and beautiful, it hard to miss. It is also beautifully maintained...More

This old adobe church is worth a visit. It is outside of the main historic district and easy to miss when you drive by. The back of the church faces the street. Charming and simple, I can see why Georgia O’Keefe was inspired to paint...More

Wonderful and peaceful stop - it's easy to see why so many artists have used this church as subject matter. We stop each time we're in Taos.

We visited the church on a Sunday morning during mass. It’s an amazing piece of architecture with peaceful, contemplative grounds. Sit on one of the benches under the old trees and listen to the birds. It was a divine space to decompress.

It was a good stop to correlate the church with the works of Georgia O'Keefe. The church is very well maintained and looks nice, Unfortunatel we were not able to review the interior.

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!
