We specifically came to Santa Fe to check out the Loretto Chapel. It is a lovely older chapel with a pretty amazing spiral staircase. It is apparently an architectural mystery as it does not have supports in the middle or on the sides. While it is braced now, it wasn't for the longest time, yet was still able to hold people and function as a staircase. It doesn't hurt that the chapel is quite pretty in its own right. Definitely worth a stop in if you're looking for a pretty and historic site in Santa Fe.
