We walked the Santa Fe Plaza all 4 days we were in town and everyday I saw something different that amazed me. From beautiful artsy entry doors, to stunning handcrafted sculptures and jewelry. I could spend 1,000's here. Well...I actually did! Enjoy! Fun for all!

We s enjoyed our break in the plaza. We bought the best street tacos ever on the corner of the plaza and found a shady place to eat, refresh, and talk about our day. There were artists around the edges and Native American artists just across the street. Many toney shops are near and great for window shopping. The plaza brings you back to thoughts of Old Santa Fe and what a great gathering place it is.

Always a great place to sit, people watch and catch live music. And LOTS of shopping! Bonus points....the Plaza Cafe at least once on your trip.

The square sits in the center of the city. It is surrounded by many galleries, gift shops, restaurants, and several historic sites that are must see in Santa Fe. The is a great spot to relax whether tourist or local.

The Santa Fe Plaza is the hub of Santa Fe, home of the Governors Palace, and the Cathedral. On every street connecting to the Plaza are Galleries, Museums and restaurants within easy walking. The Plaza hosts most of the festivals during the year in Santa Fe, and becomes a walking friendly community area. Spanish and Indian market are two of the largest in NM. Local Santa Fe Artists have Galleries surrounding the Plaza, with easier access than Canyon rd. and often better values. Indian market every Saturday where you can speak with the artists and buy from them. Two restaurants ]on the Plaza serve authentic New Mexican food at reasonable prices.

We enjoyed walking around this area. Lots of shops, restaurants, musuems, etc. to see.
In October every lamp post was adorned with long strings of chili peppers. On this particular Saturday merchants were selling their wares, mostly handmade jewelry, along Palace of the Governors.

We walked by and around the plaza at night. Lights in the trees and red pepper strands really welcome you to Santa Fe. Lots of entertainment around the plaza, places to shop and eat. Felt safe and liked the patrol car nearby.
During the day there was a few guys singing and playing their guitar or a guy that will make you a poem on a typewriter.

The Santa Fe Plaza was built in 1610 and still remains the heart and social hub of the city. The longest continually used government building in the USA, The Palace of the Governors, is located on the north side of the plaza and under its portal local artisans sell their handicrafts. Surrounding the other three sides of the square are historic buildings housing shops, restaurants and museums. We enjoyed a filling, delicious breakfast at The Plaza Cafe on the west side of the square.
On the days of our visit to Santa Fe there was lively musical entertainment at various times during the day and with benches for sitting it was a pleasure to pause and enjoy the ambiance of the Plaza. Check out the Soldiers' Monument where the the wording that characterized the native population has been chiseled away with an adjacent plaque explaining the controversy.

We live close to the Santa Fe Plaza so eating at The Plaza is common. We tried the white wine sangria, shared mixed meat fajitas, and took home a piece of chocolate cake. So delicious, good service, if you do not go at a peak time the wait is minimal.
