Albuquerque Old Town, Albuquerque

3.8
Take a stroll through Albuquerque Old Town, the city's historical district, which dates back to the Spanish founding of Albuquerque in 1706. The plaza is the focal point and the location of the San Felipe de Neri Church, built in 1793. Pop into one of the shops selling traditional Southwest crafts, art, and other items. You can treat yourself to ice cream on a shaded, wrought-iron bench or dive into the area's famed Mexican cuisine for something more substantial. To learn more about the rich history of the area, take a guided walking tour.

  • The entire Old Town Area is well cared for and beautiful. The gazebo makes it a perfect place for many events, both private and public. Highly recommended for a quiet afternoon.  more »
  • Local architecture and many shops that seem less trap to tourists and less primed than that of Santa Fe. We were still in low season and there was no big world. Easy to access and also to park..
