San Felipe de Neri, Alburquerque, NM. The original church was on the west side of the plaza, but deteriorated due to the common floodings of the Río Grande during the Spanish colonial, Mexican and early Territorial periods.  This newer church is late 1700s. Adobe construction. Italianate style altar - wood and other materials finished and painted to look like marble. Spires and towers in a gothic style. The cruciform is no longer visible from the exterior due to the later additions on the west and east sides, including Sister Blandina's convento.
