The Catholic faith came to New Mexico with the Franciscans in 1598. The city of Santa Fe was founded in 1610 and the original church was built in that same year. This church was built in 1886. Of special interest is the La Conquistadora Chapel which is largely made from the remains of the church which was built in 1714 after the original building was destroyed in the Indian Revolt of 1680. It also contains a statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary brought to Santa Fe in 1626.
