Unique structure of the building is well worth the trip. Most interesting was the background of how the church is maintained

The structure of this adobe church is remarkable - gigantic buttresses at the front and back of the building are not only functional but beautiful. Almost modernistic, architecturally. And all made from mud. There's a real calmness and silence inside even though the church is...More

Beautiful building. Garden wasn’t maintained. Needs more background / historical information. Still recommend it as a must see in Taos.

We stopped to look at the mission, which served as a subject for works by Georgia O'Keeffe and Ansel Adams. The grounds are fairly limited (in front of the church). Photographs are not allowed inside. The dirt parking lot is quite rutted.

What a thrill to stand outside then enter into this magnificently preserved holy place we've seen photos of many times. Worth a short detour for sure!

A must when in Taos.The interior is simple but worth a visit.The hidden gem is the mysterious painting of Jesus that is housed in the building next door.

It was great to see the inspiration for the Georgia O'Keefe paintings. Beautiful on the inside and out, the only disappointment is that they did not allow photography inside the church. A must see if you are in Taos.

There is no charge for a self-guided tour. Should you wish to see the Mysterious picture, you will need to check with the staff at the bookstore. They can let you know when you may enter this small room that is in another... More
