The Miraculous Stairway of Loretto Chapel

The Miraculous Stairway -- an architectural wonder, it has two 360 degree turns with no visible means of support, and was made without nails. It has a story/legend telling of a travelling carpenter who built it and mysteriously disappeared without pay... some believe he was a saint. You can read about it here: www.lorettochapel.com/staircase.html Santa Fe, 9-2-11.

    These are beautiful stairs! (and you'd definitely have to "unwind" after walking up them, haha) Where in Santa Fe is this?

    Thanks Magicalmiss! The Loretto Chapel is just 2-3 blocks away from the historic Santa Fe Plaza.
