Old Town Albuquerque, Albuquerque

(4.2/5 based on 3,200+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • I didn't realize I was there for the 200th anniversary of Albuquerque. It was a festival in old town and a lot of fun. Ethnic singers/dancers. Fun shops around the square. Great food.

  • I love Old Town-So much to see and shop!! From art work to the touristy stuff-All good!! Especially the stores on Romero!!
  • 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.
  • Charming old town feel. Plenty of little shops and boutiques. This is a great place to visit and stay a while.
  • Great for a weekend walk! usually there's live music playing, great little shops & great ice cream shops as well as restaurants near by
  • 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!
