One of the oldest gathering places in the United States and the city's cultural epicenter, Santa Fe Plaza dates back to the first decade of the 17th century. Originally constructed by Spanish colonial authorities, the square is now on the National Register of Historic Places and remains one of the city's most popular areas. Wander the tree-lined walkways, or explore the many restaurants, shops, galleries, and historical buildings surrounding the square. Take note of the nearby basilica, which is a shining example of the adobe architectural style. Check local listings for information on events, such as the concerts and markets frequently hosted at the site. Plan a trip to Santa Fe easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

  • Amazing shopping! BUT! If you want to get the REAL deals the local natives tribes sell there amazing work at the governor's Palace on the side walks! I got some amazing deals under 30 bucks! Not bad for exquisite handmade jewelry pieces. Really check them out before you spent way too much on over priced items on the local shops and boutiques.
  • Walked around the square and shops, doing the best they can with the current Covid restrictions
