As a teen in HS history was one of my favorite classes.  Since this past week was spent away from home on vacation,I decided to share some photos of...

The Loretto Chapel in Santa Fe New Mexico,built between 1873-1878 and houses the famous Spiral Stairway.

At the base of the Altar is a Bas-Relif of Leonardo Da Vinci's The Last Supper.

The rose window in the choir loft. (made in France)

The Sacred Heart statue.

Stained glass panes in the front entrance/door.

The Confessional,surrounded by Stations of the Cross.

The Spiral Stairway,was built by an unknown carpenter in answer to prayers to St. Joseph by the sisters of Loretto.

View of the chapel interior from the front entrance.  (hope you enjoyed the virtual tour)


  1. Beautiful photo! History was my favorite in college and photography was a close second. I hope you had a wonderful vacation!

  2. A beautiful church with lots of history! I like that photo from the front entrance. It really shows the grandeur of the chapel.

  3. Really cool. That staircase would go nice in my house ; P (but it might be a chore to get furniture upstairs)
    A nice look at a historical and present religion.
