De Asis Church

I enjoyed my brief stay at Hotel La Fonda de Taos and I will be returning. It is a beautiful historic hotel with all the modern conveniences. The location is great for walks around the plaza area and adjoining neighborhoods. The stay was very nice and the coffee shop was a great place for morning coffee and a croissant.


Taos Landmarks

The Historic San Francisco de Asis Church less than 10 minutes from our hotel in Ranchos de Toas. One of the most photographed and painted churches in the world, it is also home to the famous painting “Shadow of the Cross”—a mystery to behold. Made famous by Georgia O’Keeffe and Ansel Adams, the church thrives in the midst of a community of shops, galleries, trading posts, restaurants and more.

The church is open for visiting hours select days of the week and Wednesday and Sunday mass services. Find more information.

This handsomely updated and elegant historic property (there’s been a hotel on this location since 1820) is ideal if you wish to be in the heart of the action—it’s directly on the plaza. The warm decor, easy proximity to nightlife and dining, and no-children-under-eight policy make this a great choice for a romantic getaway. The rooms are rustic yet elegant and are furnished in neutral colors with luxury linens and hand-tiled bathrooms. A luxury penthouse on the top floor can be joined with other suites into a super-posh four-bedroom retreat. La Fonda also houses Mosaic restaurant, which serves internationally inspired creative fare.
