St. Francis Cathedral


Built from 1869 to 1884, this Romanesque-style cathedral was designed by Santa Fe Archbishop Jean Baptiste Lamy, on whose life Willa Cather based her novel Death Comes for the Archbishop. Lamy is buried beneath the sanctuary floor. The original mission church on this site was constructed by Spanish missionaries in 1717.
