Overview

This mission church was originally built in 1612 as St. Anthony Mission. It was destroyed during the pueblo revolt and rebuilt in 1716. It is one of the oldest of the Spanish missions in the United States. The building is a beautiful and imposing structure, constructed of adobe bricks. Great care has been taken to maintain the structure and it glistens with its yearly coat of white wash. Photographs are not allowed on the Pueblo of Isleta without the permission of the tribal governor. Admission is free.
