We were lucky enough to visit while they were preparing for their Easter Sunday chamber performance so got an amazing preview. The acoustics in this church are simply magical. The staircase is cool too!

Tiny chapel, now privately owned - historic and beautiful - the staircase is amazing - could not figure out how it could function as it does-worth the visit. Has a gift store too.

Whether or not you’re a Christian, the Loretta chapel offers a bit of history, and incredible story, and a sense of the beauty of early Santa Fe.

Beautiful stop in Santa Fe! We enjoyed the stop and friendly staff, The miracle staircase was so amazing to view and the audio recording was fantastic to listen to.

We always visit cathedrals in other countries, and this ranks up with the most interesting. One of the places one must see in Santa Fe.
