Create an itinerary including San Felipe de Neri Church
Originally constructed by colonial Spanish authorities, San Felipe de Neri Church represents an integral part of the state's cultural heritage and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Visit the European-style church, finished in 1793 to replace an earlier building on the same spot, and admire its construction featuring two bell towers and stout adobe walls. Once inside, notice its understated decor, including a metal ceiling and intricate altar at the front. Take the opportunity to browse the on-site museum's displays of artifacts, which date as far back as the 17th century. As it's still an active church, you can join in on the regularly-held services during your visit.

  • A beautiful church located in Old Town. At a glance, you can definitely tell there's a rich history to this church. It is the oldest church in Albuquerque after all. Unfortunately, I didn't go inside because the door was locked when I visited. But definitely stop by if you're visiting and shopping in Old Town.
  • Gorgeous architecture and very well kept and preserved! Stunning colors and unique features. Definitely loved walking around all the stands here during the Balloon Fiesta Weekend, and will be back to check it out again sometime for sure.
