This church is famous for its architecture. Georgia O'Keefe and Ansel Adams were bot inspired by it. On the plaza there is one of my favorite galleries - Two Graces. Across the road is Old Martina's Hall, and immaculately restored old dance hall which is now a lovely restaurant and venue for music.

The San Francisco Mission Church was built in the 1700's. Located about five miles south of downtown Taos, the church is surrounded by a number of old wooden and adobe structures. The church itself is made of adobe and is resurfaced with straw filled mud every year. The interior is white plaster with wooden beams. The main altar of the church is surrounded by two brightly painted wooden panels.
The Church of Saint Francis has been painted by Georgia O'Keefe and photographed by Ansel Adams.

San Francisco de Asis Mission Church is a church built between 1772 and 1816. It is located on the plaza in Ranchos de Taos, itself a historic district named Ranchos de Taos Plaza, about four miles southwest of the town of Taos, New Mexico.
Construction on the church began around 1772 and was completed in 1815 by Franciscan Fathers and its patron is Saint Francis of Assisi. It is made of adobe as are many of the Spanish missions in New Mexico. It is located a few miles south of Taos Pueblo and has inspired among the greatest number of depictions of any building in the United States. It was the subject of four paintings by Georgia O'Keeffe, and photographs by Ansel Adams and Paul Strand. Georgia O'Keeffe described it as, "one of the most beautiful buildings left in the United States by the early Spaniards." The Taos Chamber of Commerce states that the building is "one of the most photographed and painted churches in the world"
