Santa Fe (New Mexico) - Wink Travel Guide

Santa Fe (New Mexico) - Wink Travel Guide Summary

Santa Fe, founded in 1607, is the capital of the state of New Mexico and its principal tourist destination, renowned for its confluence of scenic beauty, long history, cultural diversity, and extraordinary concentration of arts, music and fine dining.

With an elevation of 7,000 ft (2,100 m), it is not only the United States' oldest state capital but its highest, sitting at the foot of the spectacular Sangre de Cristo Mountains. And with a population of about 70,000, it's not the most populous capital, but that's part of its charm.

This is not a capital that bustles with politicians but one that bustles with tourists, who flood the narrow streets around the town's plaza in the summer months to take in the beautiful adobe architecture, the unique cultural heritage, and the spectacular art that make Santa Fe one of the world's top travel destinations.

Wink Travel Guides introduce you to the best world travel destinations, in a clear and concise way, illustrated by photos.
