West of Santa Fe Plaza, Guadalupe Street visitors will find the historic Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe Church, The Soul of Santa Fe. Continuing it daily parish activities, the church doubles as a museum of art and history, housing a collection of New Mexican santos, Italian Renaissance paintings and Mexican Baroque artwork. One of the museum's most treasured works is an oil painting of Our Lady of Guadalupe, composed in 1783 by one of Mexico’s most renowned artists, Jose de Alzibar.
