Miraculous Stairs of Loretto, Santa Fe, NM

The Miraculous Stairs of Loretto, Santa Fe, NM - the stairs have no discernible support and was reportedly built by St. Joseph. (Photo by Cecilia Brainard)

I looked forward to seeing this chapel, having heard it's history, but the minute I walked on it's grounds felt no religiosity whatsoever. There is a fee to enter the church, and there is a huge gift shop, restaurants and other stories nearby; the church butts up against the Loretto hotel. With some research I learned that the Loretto Church had been deconsecrated decades ago.

The San Miguel Mission Church and Basilica Cathedral of St. Francis in Santa Fe "felt" so much better.
