Hidden El Paso Gems – The La Fe Clinic
“El Paso is so ugly!”
“Why can’t we have cool stuff like other cities?”
If you live in El Paso, chances are at some point you’ve talked a little trash about our fair city, but it’s unfair to say that our city has no beauty to it - you just need to know where to find it!
If you’re new in town, and even if you’re old to town like me(!), you should get off the freeway and just drive around. The Central part of town has the coolest little bungalow houses that were built right after WWII – in parts of the Northeast, you would swear you are in the mid ’60! And if you have a lazy Saturday afternoon, walk around Downtown and look up at all the breathtaking architecture!
Darren and I love to grab a burger at Papa Burger on Yandell, and right around the corner is one of El Paso’s coolest art installations, and one of my favorite sights to see in the EP.
It is the front of the Centro de Salud Familiar La Fe on Brown and Yandell. The entire front of the building is an amazing mural, but the image of Christ is 3 dimensional, and it is so striking and so beautifully rendered, it just stops you in your tracks.
The Centro de Salud Familiar La Fe helps Hispanic families in a variety of ways including providing health care to disadvantaged families in El Paso. They’ve been serving the community for 40 years. Their committment to the culture and history of El Paso is evident in their stunning mural. You should swing by and take a look!
