San Miguel Mission
Built by Native American slaves, this Spanish Colonial building was completed in 1625, then nearly destroyed during the Pueblo revolt of 1680. In 1710, the Spanish once again took control of Santa Fe and rebuilt the San Miguel Mission. Mass is still held in the church every Sunday at 5 p.m. The religious artwork in the building is inspiring, and the bell dates to the early 1300s. An audio recording describes the history of the church, and is played continuously.
What a beautiful combination of typical local architecture and rich history of Santa Fe. I was travelling with a group studying the Catholic History of the region and San Miguel Mission did not disappoint.
