Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi in Santa Fe, New Mexico - New Year's Travel Day 4 - 3/7

       During New Year's holidays, my husband and I went on a road trip for 5 days. On January 3, after having breakfast at Palacio Cafe, cozy Mexican restaurant in Downtown Santa Fe, we went to Cathedral Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi, which is a Catholic church and is located very close to the restaurant.

      The heavy bronze entrance doors were very beautiful. According to Wikipedia, during the restoration of 1986, new doors were created, each with ten bronze panels that portray events in the history of the church in Santa Fe. Donna Quasthoff was the commissioned sculptor.


     We took off our caps when we entered the church. We were allowed to take photos inside. :) 

    The church was beautifully decorated for Christmas.

      We are not Catholics, but I felt very peaceful in this church. :)

     Then, we headed toward Loretto Chapel. I'll write about it next time.
