The Northeast of Santa Fe, within city limits, was for many years the center of Santa Fe life. On every street are examples of newer, award-winning architecture and well-established, older adobe homes. In addition to the famous Plaza, this area includes all the land extending to the Jemez and the Sandias.
On one side of the Plaza is the Palace of the Governors; constructed in the early 17th century as Spain’s seat of government, the Palace of the Governors chronicles the history of the city, as well as New Mexico and the region. Enjoy a walk down East Palace Avenue past galleries, shops and La Posada and The Drury Plaza Hotels.
Ski Basin Road – sublime east and northern views, and some of the most distinguished newer homes in Santa Fe, The Summit and Sierra del Norte are two of the city’s premier developments. Also on the Ski Basin Road are Cerros Colorados and the older community of Hyde Park Estates, both with wonderful properties and incredible views.
The Santa Fe Plaza – Historically, a plaza was the center of each Hispanic village— people could come to relax under shady trees, hear music, socialize and hear the latest news. Santa Fe’s plaza has a large variety of shops, art galleries and restaurants. What makes the Santa Fe Plaza intriguing is the Palace of Governors, where the conquistadores, the Spanish conquerors of the Native Americans, placed the seat of their territorial government. Built in 1610 as a fort, it is now a history museum. Another Santa Fe tradition is the Native American artists who sit under the long, shady portal and sell their handmade jewelry, pottery and other works of art. All items sold by the Indians under the portal are made by either the vendor, or a member of his or her family.
