The charming capital city of New Mexico is a delightful place to spend several days. The city fathers have taken great pains to preserve the Spanish architecture so characteristic of the region through strict zoning regulations. The result is like going back in time to an earlier and quieter time.
The Main Square is surrounded by vintage Spanish stucco buildings, the most important of which is the Palace of the Governors, now a museum and marketplace for local Indian craftsmen.
The Santa Fe Cathedral is another important tourist stop.
Near the Cathedral is another church, the Loretto Chapel, which boasts the amazing Loretto Staircase, a mysterious marvel of engineering.
Another Church, San Miguel is the oldest house of worship in the city..
