"Be still and know that I am God" - absolutely the thing to do whether outside around this historic church in the courtyards or inside, sitting in a pew. It is simplistically and beautifully decorated inside, and the landscaping around is very native and gorgeous.

This little church is a wonderful piece of history. A must see when visiting old town Albuquerque. We didn't know it was there and stumbled upon it. It is so pretty inside and has a gift store attached with very nice inexpensive items to purchase.

We have always loved stopping in this church and always bring our out of town guests here. The history is amazing and shouldn't be missed.

You should really make a visit to the Church while you're in Old Town. The grounds are lovely, well groomed, and the interior is simple but worth the time to visit.

This is a really interesting style church. This is our third time visiting it. We really like the gift shop. They have some very reasonably priced gifts available. This time I bought beautiful Raku medallions with a neat design on the front and an inspirational statement on the back (ie. cross on the front with I am Grateful on the... More

Being Catholic, one of the pleasures of traveling is to see the history of the churches as they were built and used during the exploration of North America. This church pre-dates the American Revolution.

From the outside, San Felipe is pretty impressive. Inside, however, it's not as ornate as others you might have visited (St. Francis in Santa Fe, for one). It's a nice visit and a way to get out of the Old Town heat in the summer, and it's a peaceful feeling walking around the grounds. However, it's not something to go... More

The church is in the middle of Old Town and pretty to go inside. I wanted to be able to light candles as is usual in Catholic churches, but there weren't any. There was a nice religion themed store next store with many religious items to buy. It seems they don't charge tax.maybe because it's connected to the church.

When it comes to churches, it's not spectacular, but it wins you over with its simplicity, and plain setting. I enjoyed my visit.

Fascinating old church built in 1706. An Old Town treasure. A must see for the traveler. Just off the Plaza.
