The Cathedral Basilica of Saint Francis of Assisi, commonly known as Saint Francis Cathedral, is a Roman Catholic cathedral in downtown Santa Fe, New Mexico. The church is one of the rare significant departures from Santa Fe's ubiquitous Pueblo architecture.
The altar screen at St. Francis Cathedral is a testament to the mix of cultures in New Mexico. Called Saints of the Americas, its 15 brightly painted and gold-leafed panels depict an Indian convert with a turtle at her feet, as well as saints from Peru, Italy, Spain, and Mexico, among other places.
This almost 400 yrs old cathedral brings a sense of peace, beauty and mystery in our hectic modern world.
