Santa Fe’s Loretto Chapel was built in 1873.  This gothic church has an amazing spiral staircase that makes two complete 360 degree turns.  Visitors marvel at how the “floating” staircase stands without falling down.

About Pam
Richard and Pam lived in the San Francisco Bay Area 14 years (1987-1999 and 2008-2011). They lived in Florida 13 years previously, until returning in July 2011 to present. They hope their photography will encourage you to get out and discover nature's beauty in your own backyard, parks, and wild places.

    Please let me know if you sell photos of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in the Loretto Chapel. Also, do you know the name of the who sculpted the statue?

      Frances, I will send you an e-mail. I am happy to share the picture for your personal or church use at no charge. Unfortunately I do not know who sculpted the statue. I checked my church guide, and it did not give that information. I also zoomed in on the writing underneath the statue in my original photo, but it was a dedication.
