San Jose De Gracia Catholic Church, Las Trampas, New Mexico

Built in 1760, San Jose De Gracia Catholic Church is along the High Road to Taos, New Mexico. The village of Las Trampas was established in 1751 by a dozen families receiving a land grant from the Spanish governor.  The adobe walls are about six feet thick and the well-maintained church is considered one of the best preserved examples of Spanish Colonial architecture in New Mexico.  The National Park Service has a good history of the location here.  It’s located about ten miles away from San Lorenzo de Picuris.
