"San Felipe de Neri Church" Old Town Tip by Paulie_D

Old Town, Albuquerque: 44 reviews and 86 photos

 
 

San Felipe de Neri, an active parish church, is located in Old Town Plaza in downtown Albuquerque.

Unfortunately, I visited on a Sunday and services were being held at that time. I am not a churchgoer and did not wish to intrude merely for the sake of a tourist's interest.

Consequently, the following information was obtained from the National Park Service website.

"San Felipe de Neri was built in 1793 to replace the original 1706 mission church. The adobe church is built in the traditional colonial style with Spanish overtones and mixtures of 18th and 19th century decorative and building elements. The interior has wood paneled wainscoting, a stamped metal ceiling, an elaborate altar and plaster walls painted to resemble marble. San Felipe de Neri Church presents an interesting combination of the old and new building traditions of New Mexico."
