Originally constructed by colonial Spanish authorities, San Felipe de Neri Church represents an integral part of the state's cultural heritage and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Visit the European-style church, finished in 1793 to replace an earlier building on the same spot, and admire its construction featuring two bell towers and stout adobe walls. Once inside, notice its understated decor, including a metal ceiling and intricate altar at the front. Take the opportunity to browse the on-site museum's displays of artifacts, which date as far back as the 17th century. As it's still an active church, you can join in on the regularly-held services during your visit.

San Felipe de Neri Church reviews
Absolutely beautiful. When you walk into this historic place of worship you get a sense of culture. You can smell the incense and myrrh and almost here the ohm of the priest. Are regardless of religious affiliation, you'll enjoy this absolutely beautiful place of worship.
I visited this historical beauty about 4 years ago and was stunned by its stillness and the holy atmosphere. However, since then there has been an obnoxious recording that plays explaining the history of the church. This severely reduced the sacred feel of the church. Please, please reconsider the speakers and audio message. It eliminates the feeling of authenticity and holiness.
