El Santuario De Guadalupe

My favorite place in Santa Fe: el Santuario de Guadalupe, built in the late 1700s, it's the oldest shrine to Our Lady of Guadalupe in the United States. It's so quiet. And I love its stark simplicity. I'm generally also fairly indifferent to statues, but I adore the Our Lady of Guadalupe outside the chapel.
