San Geronimo Chapel

Taos Pueblo, Taos, NM
In a previous photo (August 17) we could see the old church at Taos Pueblo, destroyed long ago. The new chapel, named for Jerome, the patron saint of the Pueblo, was built in 1850. It is a great example of mission architecture. If you take the tour provided at the Pueblo, you'll learn how the Taos Puebloans have integrated Catholicism with their ancient religious practices.
