Pecos National Historical Park #2 -Ruins of Mission Church

The Mission ruins were pretty impressive! According to the information I got in the Visitors Center, the first church was built in the early 1600's, and the second was completed in the early 1700's.
To learn more about Pecos, the first residents and pueblos, early encounter with the Spaniards, and the Civil War in the West, visit this site for some history of Pecos.

  8. This is great. Was the church built with clay bricks (I mean bricks that were no baked but dried in the sun)?
