Santa Fe Off The Beaten Path: 76 reviews and 138 photos


I have gone into the Loretto Chapel on numerous occasions bringing friends into Santa Fe for the first time. We usually park at the parking lot behind the Visitors Center so walking to the square this is on the way. This is a quaint little chapel with an interesting spiral staircase with a legend. The donation is $2.50 as of December 2006. You sit in the chapel and listen to a tape that discusses the legend of the Chapel. it is a very spiritual place. They also have a sweet little gift shop where you can purchase religous medals, post cards, rosaries etc. It also gives you some time to sit down, out of the sun and maybe do a little personal reflecting. I like this place.
