Saturday, I shared some vacation memories from the TX leg of our West Coast trip. Today I'd like to share treasures found in Santa Fe, NM....
Santa Fe is HUGE in the arts so if you love to look and shop and gaze at sculptures, paintings and museums - it's a mega treat for you.
I love art but not enough to spend hours traipsing about in the heat to simply gaze. However, I did get to visit 4 historic places....
#1: San Miguel Chapel....The Oldest church in the United States. Filled with history, it is still an active place of worship today.
#2: Loretto Chapel....the church with the miraculous staircase. I tell you this was my favorite place despite the commercialism of it. They have an entire hotel, spa and other businesses attached and associated with the chapel, and it is definitely a stunning site. This statue of Jesus is absolutely breathtaking and His eyes truly reflect the love He has for you! No trip to Santa Fe is complete without visiting this gorgeous place of worship.
#3: The Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi. St. Francis is one of my favorite saints of all time. His Peace Prayer, is absolutely life changing. Everything about this cathedral was beyond description. Again, despite the commercialism of the place, you could really feel the presence of God and St. Francis in this holy place.
We also visited the DeVargas Street House (the oldest house in Santa Fe) and ate at Upper Crust Pizza.
All in all, our trip to Santa Fe was amazing and definitely memories to treasure!
Next week I'll share some photos from Sedona and the Grand Canyon so please check back for Tuesday Treasures, Thursday Thoughts and Saturday Spotlight.
Until next time, take care and God Bless!
