San Lorenzo de Picuris, Picuris Pueblo, New Mexico

In the Sangre de Cristo (Blood of Christ) Mountains in northern New Mexico is a series of small pueblos.  In many of them there is a small church established during the Spanish missions of the 17th century.  This church in Picuris Pueblo (San Lorenzo) has changed over the years, and using historical records, it was rebuilt in the 1960s to resemble the church as it looked in 1778.
