    "Capilla" means "chapel" in Spanish. Northern New Mexico's landscape saw many little chapels built by families who were long distances from a church. These chapels, from very tiny to some pretty big and grand, served the families' spiritual needs between visits from their priests. This old building was not originally a capilla. It was actually where they stored ammunition during the time La Casa Vieja was a small fort. La Capilla is authentically furnished and is worth the 10 minute drive from Espanola all on its own.
