Historic Old Town in Albuquerque is the oldest and most charming section of this New Mexico city It is where the city of Albuquerque was started by settlers more than 300 years ago. It remains a vibrant cultural, residential and business center with galleries, restaurants and gift shops nestled in centuries old Adobe-style buildings. A tour through Old Town begins at the gazebo in front of the historic San Felipe de Neri Church (dating back to 1793), where you are likely to discover a concert or cultural performance on the weekends during the spring and summer. A stroll along Old Town’s quaint streets is a trip back in time. Its many gift shops and galleries offer a sampling of New Mexico’s rich culture and artistic virtues. Within easy walking distance is Albuquerque’s museum row, with the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and the beautiful Albuquerque Museum, where outdoor musical concerts happen all summer in the sculpture garden.
