Historic Walking Area · Neighborhood
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. Put Albuquerque Old Town into our Albuquerque trip itinerary builder site to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Albuquerque.

  • It was so neat seeing what the older styles of places were like and all the stores were very kind people.  more »
  • Lots of shops. Too many to see in one day but prices seemed high. We would like to go back again to see more shops in Old Town.  more »
