Albuquerque, New Mexico

New MexicoRoadside Attraction

San Felipe de Neri Parish in Albuquerque, New Mexico is a historic place of worship that dates back to 1793. Located on the northern end of Albuquerque’s Old Town Plaza, the church offers tours for visitors and services for parishioners.

The church was originally founded under the direction of Fray Manuel Moreno in 1706. After the original structure collapsed in the winter of 1792, the current Cathedral was built in 1793. At more than 300 years old, it is one of the oldest surviving buildings in the city. The church is still in use and visitors can tour the church, grounds, convent, museum, and gift shop.

The San Felipe de Neri church was built in cruciform, shaped like a cross with thick adobe walls, wooden vigas, and carved corbels. Most of the structure is true to its original 1793 build, but it has since been restored and maintained. The tin ceiling, brick floor, and south entrance were all redone during a major renovation project that refurbished much of the property, both inside and out.

The present church building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the New Mexico State Register of Cultural Properties. Visitors are welcome to explore the grounds, take a tour, or stay for a worship service.
