October 24, 2015 marks the 28th year that the Foundation will host its renowned architectural tour, and this year the Landmarks of Española Valley will be the main attraction.
The featured location of the tour will be El Mision Santa Cruz de la Cañada, the largest of the Spanish Colonial period churches in New Mexico. Completed in 1748, the adobe structure contains some of the most magnificent examples of locally-produced religious art in the Southwest.
Each location will include a guided tour by a lecturer who will help us understand the historic structures along with each building’s context to the community.
Foundation Member: $25
Tour is open to the public. Registration includes transportation, refreshments, and lunch at the Rancho de Chimayo Restaurante. The bus will have pick-up locations in Albuquerque and Santa Fe. Architects can earn 5 Continuing Education Units (HSW) for a $60 fee, pending AIA approval.
