4 crosses over San Geronimo Chapel, Taos Pueblo, NM

The new San Geronimo Chapel, Taos Pueblo, NM. The Pueblo of Taos is approximately 1000 years old and is inhabited by a Northern Tiwa speaking tribe of the Pueblo People. The original San Geronimo Church was constructed by the Spanish around 1620 against the will of the native people. Over the next 60 years the church was destroyed by native people twice, killing one or more priests each time. The latest was in 1680 during the "Pueblo Revolt". This latest version of the church was built in 1850 on a different spot, leaving the remnants of the prior church where it fell several hundred yards away.
