This is a revived 18th century village with a central plaza, church and plenty of shops, restaurants and bars set up in restored 17-1800’s adobe haciendas. It’s low key on the outside so you need to get up close the the shops to find out what’s there. This is obviously a local entertainment district that draws s crowd weekend evenings. We stopped for a short visit and enjoyed walking around the several square blocks of buildings. We stopped at the bookstore and had a drink at Peppers. We also stopped in s few trinket shop all filled with fun Southwest stuff. Lots of jewelry too if you like that. I would look at a detailed map first to get the lay of the land as there is plenty to explore.

I imagine that the Santa Fe Plaza was once low-key and charming like this one. Of course, it's not as large. But it has some interesting shops and restaurants, a lovely gazebo, and the Basilica of San Albino. It's a nice sample of old New Mexico.

So many little shops all around the plaza, fun to check them out. You can find clothing, gift shops, restaurants, and all. Even a craft market on Friday and Sunday.

Sunday's and. Wednesday's they hold a farmers market. Local crafts and food is available. Cinco we Mayo festival is held on the Plaza May 5. Great music, BALLET Folklorico, food vendors. Very enjoyable. Remember this used to be Mexico.
