Discover our Mission Trail!

Here's a shot of the beautiful chapel at San Elizario, part of El Paso County's Mission Trail, one of the jewels of our region.  When you're in the area, plan to visit one of the three missions--all are active congregations--and discover the beauty of the architecture and the incredibly rich history of early exploration (the Camino Real de Tierra Adentro--the Royal Road of the Inter Land--came to being when Don Juan de Oñate forged  through the Chihuahuan desert and into Santa Fe, New Mexico in 1598).   and settlement of the area.  To book a tour of the mission trail, click here to read more!
