First built in 1852 and then rebuilt in 1906, the Basilica of San Albino in Mesilla, New Mexico has become a tourist attraction in the area. Apart from being surrounded by old buildings, the basilica is strategically located at the Mesilla Plaza, a National Historic Landmark.
Just next to the basilica, is a small gift shop that sells religious items. The Basilica of San Albino Gift Shop is not just a gift shop. It also has a room that displays rare historical memorabilia of the church. The small room is actually amazing.
