Santa Fe

Founded by the Spanish in 1610 on the ancient ruins of a Tewa Indian
pueblo, Santa Fe's 300 year history is rich with cultural and artistic
diversity and depth.  At the base of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, today
Santa Fe represents the heart of a beautiful high desert region that still
reflects the spirit animating Native American and Hispanic life, as well
as the work of such writers and artists as Willa Cather, D. H. Lawrence,
Mary Austin, and Georgia O'Keefe. 

Of special interest in Santa Fe is the Santa Fe Opera, and reservations
should be made as soon as possible through the Opera Box Office, +1-(505)
982-3855.  In addition, visitors to Santa Fe will enjoy the Fine Art
Museum, the Palace of the Governors, as well as the spectacular "High Road
to Taos" and the many occupied Indian pueblos and Anasazi archaeological
sites within a short distance of the city.  Santa Fe is well known for its
thriving gallery community and its fine New Mexican cuisine. 

Santa Fe is 60 miles by car from a major airport at Albuquerque, and
connecting flights are available.  At 7000 feet, summer temperatures in
Santa Fe are generally moderate.
