Santa Fe New Mexico, Cristo Rey Church The last of the historical churches. I saw them all! This is the Cristo Rey Church. I think this is quite a handsome one and wouldn't have made it were it not for a lovely woman who saw me trudging up the road and offered me a ride.

From Fodor's: 'Built in 1940 and designed by legendary Santa Fe architect John Gaw Meem to commemorate the 400th anniversary of Francisco Vásquez de Coronado's exploration of the Southwest, this church is the largest Spanish adobe structure in the United States and is considered by many the finest example of Pueblo-style architecture anywhere.'
