San Jose de Gracia de Las Trampas

Las Trampas 9-9-2010 - for Blog


In a style similar to his latest paintings of El Santuario de Chimayo Bob just completed a rendition of the charming adobe church in Las Trampas. The watercolor and ink work measures 8×10” and will be matted to fit an 11×14” frame.

The Spanish colonial village of Las Trampas, which dates to 1751,   is located in a high valley of New Mexico’s Sangre de Cristo Mountains along the High Road to Taos (NM76 between Santa Fe and Taos). San Jose de Gracia de Las Trampas was completed in 1760 and still serves as an active parish church. Distinctive features include the wooden belfries and the second-story exterior balcony. Considered one of the best preserved examples of Spanish Colonial Mission architecture in New Mexico the church was fully restored in the 1960s.
