About the San Miguel Mission ChapelThe San Miguel Mission Chapel, the oldest church in the country, is the key site to the Barrio de Analco. This National Landmark barrio was founded by a group of Mexican Indians from Tlaxcala. The adobe church was constructed under the direction Franciscan friars to serve a small congregation of soldiers, laborers and Indians who lived in the Analco Barrio. It was partially destroyed during the Pueblo Revolt of 1680. By the early 18th century San Miguel had become one of the principal ecclesiastical buildings in the provincial capital. The present building dates from 1710, although it has undergone significant structural changes. This San Miguel Mission Chapel is located at the corner of East De Vargas St. and Old Santa Fe Trail just 4 blocks from Hotel St. Francis.
