Caption

Old Church of St. Augustine, Isleta, New Mexico - The heavily Buttressed, fort-like Mission of St. Augustine of Isleta dates back to 1605-1617 and is therefore as old as any in this county. The edifice is over 100 ft. long, and adjoining it is a series of rooms or conventos built around a patio, bright with flowers and shaded by old trees. A tapia encloses the churchyards.
