Santa Fe- Cathedral Basilica of Saint Francis of Assisi

The Cathedral Basilica of Saint Francis of Assisi(131 Cathedral Place) is a beautiful romanesque house of worship in Santa Fe.  It has fine bronze doors which cronical the life of Saint Francis, colorful stained glass, a wonderfully painted altarpiece, and a somber yet powerful wooden crucifix.

And for those who are curious about the saint's life, Francis was born to a wealthy family in Assisi, Italy.  Soon, though, he threw off his wealth, took a vow of poverty, and with great effort, founded the Franciscan Order of the Catholic Church.  Because of the pious life he led, he later became a saint.
