Quick Facts

Built in 1776-96, this cruciform adobe church is the oldest extant shrine to Our Lady of Guadalupe in the U.S. Its vigas (ceiling beams), corbels (brackets), and choir loft came from the military chapel, La Castrense. It’s at the east end of Agua Fria St., a remnant of El Camino Real de Tierra Adentro (the Royal Road to the Interior Land), later known as the Chihuahua Trail. Outside is Mexican artist Doña Georgina Farias’s 12-foot tall, 2008 bronze statue, Nuestra Senora (Our Lady) de Guadalupe.
