Old Chapel


The Santa Fe Wine Festival was held on the grounds of El Rancho De Las Golondrinas. El Rancho is a Living History Museum in the southern end of our city. Click on the link for more information. This chapel is still amazing being that it was built in the 1700's.

And a happy Monday to you. That chapel is older than I am. Amazing that it is still standing. Can you take photos inside the museum?

I didn't make it to the Wine Festival yesterday. . . too hot; I had a hat but no umbrella. Decided to wait and see the place later when it cools down a bit. Friends told me that it is a fascinating place, full of history, and I should go and take my time while there to see the buildings and area. If your fine photo is any indication, I think I will like it!

That is a long time ago for any place in the US but especially long for the western half of the US.

I see you've become even more famous in Santa Fe because of another Randy in Santa Fe. The place must be crawling with guys named Randy. :)

Lovely place with a curious name. Golondrinas is the Spanish for swallows, but it is quite different from our rondini...

Wow - that looks fabulous, Randy!

Just a great pic! I have to stop and visit every old Chapel when I see one. Usually light a candle and leave a token.
