Santa Fe is the capital of New Mexico and is famed for its ancient pueblo architecture, creative arts and cultural community, and historic district filled with adobe landmarks. The heart of the city is Santa Fe Plaza, which dates to the city’s founding in 1610 as a Spanish colony and is surrounded by the historic district with crooked, winding streets and alleyways. Among the most stunning old buildings is the Palace of the Governors, which hosts the New Mexico History Museum and is filled with hundreds of artefacts, documents, exhibits and ephemera related to the long history of this state and the American Southwest.

Santa Fe is also home to the Museum of International Folk Art with its global exhibits, the New Mexico Museum of Art showcasing regional and Native American artworks, and the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum with a permanent collection of 3,000 of the artist’s works. For a more surreal experience, visit Meow Wolf Santa Fe, which combines interactive art with a haunted-house attraction.
