Take a walk through history around Albuquerque's Old Town, the serene village that has been the focal point of community life since 1706.  Click here for an Old Town Map.

Quiet hidden patios, winding brick paths, gardens and balconies are waiting to be discovered. Wrought iron and adobe benches beckon you to rest in the shade and watch people stroll by. Visit historic San Felipe de Neri Church and relax in the Rose Garden.

Shopping in Old Town is a truly delightful experience. Unique items from around the world, as well as those that are distinctly Southwestern, can be found in more than 150 shops, boutiques, galleries and artist studios.

When in New Mexico - Eat like New Mexicans! Try delightful chile dishes which evolved from a combination of Indian and Spanish recipes, or enjoy one of the many restaurants featuring everything from the All-American hamburger to fine Continental cuisine.

For almost three centuries Old Town has been the crossroads of the Southwest. It is a Historical Zone of the City of Albuquerque and home for many families whose ancestors founded the town.
