Take a stroll through Old Town Albuquerque, 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.

  • We spent the day shopping nice shops nice selection great art nice restaurants easy to get around does not take long to see it was very busy the balloon festival was going on parking was hard to find

  • Plan on a visit here when you arrive. Spend the day and have a seat to eat. Soak up the history and visit San Felipe de Neri Church. It is registered on National History places. Built 1793, if you love NM culture and old churches add this one to your list. Also go see the Navajo Code Talkers they usually have a table. It is a World War lesson you will get goose bumps from.
  • Oh man old town is awesome. They have soo many different things there. No way you could get bored. The next time I visit I want to take a ghost tour!
  • Charming old town feel. Plenty of little shops and boutiques. This is a great place to visit and stay a while.
  • Full of old shops and an old world feel, the Old Town has a quaint sense of a time gone by.
  • Lovely place to visit and loved talked to many of the shop owners and workers.
