When Albuquerque was founded in 1706, it was actually a collection of nearby villages. A church was not completed until around 1719. The current church, San Felipe de Neri, built in 1793, is the largest building facing the plaza in Old Town. Learn more about the history of the area as we explore the church, plaza, and several neighboring streets during a walk of approximately 1.5 miles. No restrooms available. Limited enrollment.
