“Beautiful traditional old cathedral”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2012

The original area is still intact with amazing art and statuary. Stained glass
windows took my breath away with the afternoon sun streaming thru.
There was a Mass in progress in the newer part of the cathedral and we entered thru a side door in the rear. I am glad we had the opportunity to
see this magnificent church.

The church is so beautiful with its ornate paintings and architecture. Also loved the sculptures outside and in the park next to the church.

“You cannot go to Santa Fe......”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2012

without going to this building.Most Historical Buildings in Santa Fe are Adobe or corrugated steel (when it was a boom town) then covered with adobe later on in history.
The Stone Cathedral is a welcome and refreshing pleasure and well done.They really go all out on Religious Holidays.
