Beautiful cherry blossom tree dripping in rosaries. #red The famous and beautiful staircase in the Loretto Chapel in Santa Fe, NM. When the chapel was completed in 1878, there was no way to access the choir loft. It was suggested that a ladder be used, but the nuns who used the chapel didn't like this idea because of the long habits that they wore. So they prayed to St Joseph for a solution. Shorty thereafter a carpenter showed up and offered to build the staircase for them, but he needed total privacy to do so and locked himself in the chapel for 3 months. When he was done he left town, without even accepting payment. The staircase he built is not only beautiful, but it is an architectural wonder. It makes two complete 360 turns, there are not metal nails, and there is no center means of support. The identity of the carpenter was never known. #newmexico #santafe #lorettochapel #church #stairs #architecture When the Loretto Chapel was completed in 1878, there was no way to access the choir loft twenty-two feet above. Carpenters were called in to address the problem, but they all concluded access to the loft would have to be via ladder as a staircase would interfere with the interior space of the small Chapel.
Legend says that to find a solution to the seating problem, the Sisters of the Chapel made a novena to St. Joseph, the patron saint of carpenters. On the ninth and final day of prayer, a man appeared at the Chapel with a donkey and a toolbox looking for work. Months later, the elegant circular staircase was completed, and the carpenter disappeared without pay or thanks. After searching for the man (an ad even ran in the local newspaper) and finding no trace of him, some concluded that he was St. Joseph himself, having come in answer to the sisters' prayers.
The stairway's carpenter, whoever he was, built a magnificent structure. The design was innovative for the time and some of the design considerations still perplex experts today.
The staircase has two 360 degree turns and no visible means of support. Also, it is said that the staircase was built without nails—only wooden pegs. Questions also surround the number of stair risers relative to the height of the choir loft and about the types of wood and other materials used in the stairway's construction.
#StunningStructures The rosary tree stands just at the entrance to the famous chapel, home of the Mystery Staircase. Though I never was into the The Santa Fe Railyard is social place in the center of town where you can grab a bite to eat, access bike and walking trails, and on the weekends explore a great farmer's market. #newmexico #santafe Oldest House in USA...
Some believe built in the 1200s... More than one million years ago, huge volcanic explosions in New Mexico rained ash and cinders over what is now the Bandelier National Monument near Santa Fe. The eruption deposited ash over 400 feet thick. The pale rock seen here through the trees are the remains of the ash flows. Prehistoric native Americans built their pueblos in these cliffs digging rooms into canyon walls. I really love this place. Great juices, smoothies, breakfast, light lunches and so much more!

Secret and Sons has a courtyard full of old wooden doors and pillars. They try to tell you photos are not allowed from the public street! More moving artwork (in more ways than one). The Water Tower at the Santa Fe Railyard. On Saturdays this place is packed with one of the best farmers markets.

The earliest documentation of the churches existence is from 1628, so it is assumed to be built before that time. The Loretto Chapel in Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA, is a former Roman Catholic church. It is known for its unusual helix-shaped spiral staircase. This place has amazing history, beautiful architecture and large stained glass windows. Totally worth the stop it is now used as a museum and a wedding chapel. #religious #urban #tour #places Santa Fe #artmuseum #newmexico #santafe #santafenm The Citron Tarts, The Creamsicle and The Flour-less German Chocolate Cake.

http://www.liferidingshotgun.com/2014/10/stunning-santa-fe.html Meow Wolf is one of the coolest, mind-blowing art installations ever! You're trying to figure out what happened to a family by exploring their house (you can touch and use almost everything in it). Crawl through doors and holes into different universes. $18 per visit, but you can spend hours in there! We left physically and mentally tired from taking in so much! Another shot of the Burro Alley burros just off San Francisco Ave. #WhiskeySIster #church #architecture Amazing and beautiful! Venture away from the plaza in downtown Santa Fe to see this old church which is a must see. #StunningStructures #Blue #Red #WeekendGetaway #Colorful #Architecture. #roadtrip #InStone #TroveOnTuesday
Oldest church near oldest house. A great place for coffee. Can't remember the name, but it's right off the train station. This is a habanero mocha! The miraculous staircase at the Loretto Chapel which is not supported by side or center supports. #roadtrip #church A must for any liquor drinker! You will expand you plate, especially with the Herbal Gin. Tastings for all are $10 and we shared one. New Mexico Capitol Sculpture in front of the capitol building. If you get the chance, check our the rockin' atmosphere of the Cowgirl ! Fun patio, great music and the food rocks too! (I can also recommend the cocktails ;) ) #whiskeysister #herstory The Cowgirl in Santa Fe is a beat place, great venue for music (Sean Ashby seen playing here) , the food rocked and the people and servers ewe super upbeat. <3 Historic Old Santa Fe Train Station. #InStone
