Wat je gaat doen

Our exploration of the Old Town Plaza will begin with coffee, tea and biscochitos on the balcony of our home, looking out over the original town square and historic San Felipe Church. We will overlook history as well, as we gaze back to the Indigenous peoples who called this place home and life on the plaza during the Spanish, Mexican and American colonial periods. Next we will begin a walking tour of the plaza with a focus on the old adobe architecture and the stories associated with the buildings and smaller placitas that make up Old Town,using historical photos and visuals to support the information. This stroll will include secrets and lore unknown even to most Albuquerque residents, interaction with some of the "old timers" that live and work here, and pointers what to see and do and where to eat, tailored to the needs and interests of each group. Old Town is a valuable community resource and there are frequent impromptu happenings- quinceaneras, vintage car parades, etc. The tour will embrace these spontaneous events as they occur making the visit to Old Town even more vibrant and personal. Finally, at the end of the tour experience, participants have the option of being served lunch at La Placita Dining Room in the Manuel Armijo House, one of the oldest structures on the Plaza, built in 1706. Please contact for custom tour times. Se habla espanol.

I am a retired university-level educator and full time history buff with deep love and respect for Albuquerque's Old Town Plaza where I make my home. I have studied the architectural and cultural history of this community extensively, gathering information from traditional sources and also from the stories and personal narratives of many of the people whose families have called Old Town home for centuries. Living on the plaza allows for an insider's view into the day to day happenings of the plaza as well, so that historical information can be set in rich context, spanning the past to the present.
