The very striking pueblo church, just inside the gate, is called San Geronimo (Saint Jerome). It was built in 1850 to replace the church destroyed during the US/Mexican War of 1847. The church faces east and the best light strikes the front of the church mid-morning. With a super wide-angle (20mm or shorter) lens, you can frame the church in the opening of the arched gate. The zig-zag forms of the church steeple and the arch over the gate are unique. Depending on your camera angle, many compositions can be created right there. Photography is not allowed inside the church.
