The San Felipe de Neri church was built in cruciform, shaped like a cross with thick adobe walls, wooden vigas, and carved corbels. Most of the structure is true to its original 1793 build, but it has since been restored and maintained. The tin ceiling, brick floor, and south entrance were all redone during a major renovation project that refurbished much of the property, both inside and out.
The present church building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the New Mexico State Register of Cultural Properties. Visitors are welcome to explore the grounds, take a tour, or stay for a worship service.
