Description:

The Church of El Christo Rey (Christ The King) This church, although built as late as 1939, is one of the finest examples of Santa Fe-Pueblo architecture. The white stone reredos, or back altar, is its choicest treasure. The reredos were originally placed in Santa Fe by the Spainish Governor del Valle during the 18th century in a church which stood at that time on the South Side of the Plaza. This altar has some of the finest specimens of Eccles astical sculpture in the Western Hemisphere
