Come and prepare for your perfect day in Santa Fe.
Santa Fe’s Plaza has served as the city’s social nexus for four centuries. Now a casual, grassy park, it started as a central place around which Spanish officials built houses and barracks. The Palace of the Governors, constructed soon after the Plaza was established, still stands on the Plaza’s north side, and is the oldest continuously occupied public building in the U.S. Built around the time of Santa Fe’s founding, the Palace served as a seat of the viceroyalty of New Spain’s colonial government, then was home to Mexican and, even later, American territorial governors.
See why Santa Fe has been named one of the country's healthiest cities, top travel destinations, and one of the leading art centers in the country.
