Taos Pueblo "The missionaries' convent and church lie in ruins. A new church was built at a different location of the west side of the north plaza in the 19th century." - AB Evaluation. "Around 1620, the first Catholic Church in the pueblo, San Geronimo de Taos, was constructed. Reports from the period indicate that the native people of Taos resisted the building of the church and the imposition of the Catholic religion." - Wiki
