Old Town Albuquerque

Discovering New Mexico, one cool place at a time. Destination, Albuquerque, location: Old Town. New Mexico is a wonderful place filled with places worth seeing, when it comes to mind, it may seem just like flat land with nothing to offer, but New Mexico has deep history roots and exploring all these places is on my bucket list.

Old town Albuquerque is right in the center of Albuquerque. It's a majestic place. It's like a part of town where progress didn't reach, which to others may seem like a bad thing but I see it different. A place where walls, stores and features have their own story to tell.


It may look small but it has plenty of culture to offer.

 Across the street from the church. I picture this part being full of people at night, full of laughter.
 One section of Old town, where arts and crafts stalls are located. Some vendors also set up stalls on the sidewalks, we went too early, most of the stores were still closed.
 Stores on the second floor. Like an outdoor shopping mall.
 Nice and quiet, relaxed atmosphere. Parking is not an issue here as you can see.
 A blast from the past. Every town has it's own story. You can read most of it here.
 Fountain in the background with chair sets surrounding it, perfect place for outside dining.
 A view from above.
 Antique shops line the streets of Old Town.
 Such beauty.
 What New Mexico is known for, Chili's!
 Welcome to Old Town, Enjoy your visit.
 Walking around downtown.
 The plaza, perfect place for gatherings.
 Such a lovely Church, San Felipe De Neri. Built in 1973, one of the oldest surviving buildings in the city.
 Yogurt anyone?
I spent hours breathing in this beautiful place. A definite must go to place in Albuquerque. Surrounded by the busy hustle and bustle life of the city, this is a sight to behold, a trip down memory lane for some, a cultural lesson in time for most. 



Slowly but surely, I am getting to experience the beauty of the United States, one state at a time, but i'm in no rush, I'll start off exploring the state where I first lived in and see the beauty each city has to offer. 

Stay tuned for more places. 

Love, Joy.

  1. This place is stunning. The architecture is beautiful and the decoration is spectacular. Environment was transparent and resonant and warm and immediate. I loved venues in Chicago and my experience here was very exciting.
