From the haunting ruins of San Jose de los Jemez to the perfectly preserved San Jose de Gracia, the early churches of Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona, and Southern California are eloquent testimony to the creative and religious lives of the Spanish and Native American communities that founded them.
