San Francisco de Asis Church
60 St Francis Plaza
Ranchos de Taos, NM 87557
Built in the late 1700's and made famous by Georgia O'Keeffe with her painting of the church's massive adobe walls simply looming up into the sky, the San Francisco de Asis Church is still an integral part of its community.
Surrounding the church are shops, galleries, trading posts, and restaurants - all housed in old adobe buildings as well.
Every spring, the people of the community gather to mud a new layer of adobe on the walls, preserving their church in the time-worn ways of northern New Mexico.
