Santa Fe style One of the first things you notice about Downtown Santa Fe—whose heart and soul is the 400-year-old Plaza—is that it looks like no other place in the country. In 1912, the year New Mexico gained statehood, locals organized an effort to honor the history and preserve the uniqueness of this centuries-old capital city. This period of revival, which also aimed to draw tourists to town, saw the return of Pueblo-Spanish- and Territorial-style architecture—styles that still dominate the roughly two-square-mile area today. When the Spanish arrived in New Mexico in the late 16th century, they were inspired by the homes Native Americans were living in. The multistory dwellings, which the Spanish called pueblos (meaning “villages”), were a series of rooms built around a central plaza. The walls were made of stone, wood, and puddled adobe, and the flat roofs were supported by wooden vigas and embellished with latillas. The Spanish eventually adapted the building style to suit their own needs and preferences, using adobe to construct one- or two-room homes and adding few doors or windows in order to keep out the cold in the winter and the heat in the summer. Over the centuries the Spanish and Native American architectural traditions blended to create the iconic look that was revived in the early 20th century. Territorial-style architecture dates from the mid-19th century and features Greek-revival trim added to doors and windows, coping on adobe walls, and square instead of round columns. Be sure to look for these distinct types of architecture when you’re stolling on and around Downtown’s Plaza.

“Whenever I walk around Downtown, my love for this amazing city is refueled, particularly in the summer when musical acts are performing at the Bandstand. Seeing the freedom of people dancing, playing Frisbee, and chatting, all beneath a sky that is so blue it takes your breath away, I find myself once again appreciating how fortunate I am to live here.”—Aleta Pippin, owner, Pippin Contemporary “Downtown Santa Fe to me really is the Plaza. That’s where I remember walking down the street holding my grandma’s hand. It’s where during Fiesta my girlfriends and I would make a thousand laps flirting with the boys and eating green-chile cheeseburgers. It’s now where my husband and I go dancing on beautiful warm summer nights. Downtown Santa Fe is a piece of my heart.”—Cynthia Delgado, marketing director, Santa Fe Convention & Visitors Bureau
Downtown Santa Fe continues to be the hub of this historic city. While significant growth has occurred in various parts of town and captivating new neighborhoods are constantly evolving, the heart and soul of Santa Fe remains the shops, galleries, museums, restaurants, and hotels within the Paseo de Peralta loop. The Santa Fean’s offices are downtown, in the Lensic Performing Arts Center, so we feel the pace of the city as visitors and locals walk up and down San Francisco Street, just below our windows. I often walk across the Plaza early in the morning, before the day’s activity begins. I find this experience to be so special, as I imagine the Native American families, farmers, writers, business people, soldiers, and warriors who have lived and worked here over the centuries, and I think about how those lives crossed history on this sacred plot of land. Keep in mind that we’re talking about more than 400 years’ worth of history, which has witnessed everything from trading, protesting, festivals, markets, car shows, and more. When our webcam of the Plaza went live on our website, SantaFean.com, our online readership shot up 150 percent. In Santa Fe that could only have happened here, because we locals appreciate the significance of this special area. While many cities in the country have watched their downtown areas lose their vitality over the years, Santa Fe’s downtown is flourishing with new galleries and restaurants, world-class hotels, shops for every interest, and entertaining nightlife. I promise you won’t ever be bored while strolling around here, and great food and drink are always nearby. Downtown Santa Fe truly has it all, so let your eyes take in the arts and crafts, museum exhibitions, and colorful personalities that populate the neighborhood. But at the end of the day or early in the morning, join me on the Plaza when things are quiet. Reflect on the history that’s been made here and on the lives that have been affected by that history—and be sure to remember that your life is now one of those connected to this special place.

“After hundreds of years, Santa Fe’s Plaza is still the artistic, mercantile, entertainment, and dining nexus of this vibrant and richly evocative haven for culture, originality, and spirituality.

art and soul Santa Fe’s historic center is home to a thriving art scene Downtown Santa Fe is an art lover’s dream. The city, the third-largest art market in the country, has been luring and inspiring artistic types for centuries with its idyllic climate and stunningly beautiful scenery—and there’s a vast and diverse assortment of works on display to prove it. Downtown’s historic, walkable streets north, south, east, and west of the 400-year-old Plaza are lined with galleries selling everything from high-end paintings and black-and-white photographs to largescale installations and religious iconography. So whether you’re a serious collector or a first-time buyer, you won’t walk away empty-handed while traipsing around Downtown. San Francisco Street lines the southern edge of the Plaza and is filled with galleries showcasing Native American pottery, cowboy art, and custom-made jewelry. On the Plaza’s east side, shops along Old Santa Fe Trail burst with sculptures, weavings, fetishes, and katsinas. North
of the Plaza, Palace Avenue features a mixture of traditional landscapes, clay sculptures, textile arts, cartoon animations, and color-field paintings, while on Lincoln, Washington, and Marcy you’ll find some of the world’s best fine-art photography, Native American sculpture, modernist masterpieces, and mixed-media collages. One block south of the Plaza, on Water Street, you can choose from representational Southwestern works and contemporary abstract paintings, and on Galisteo and Don Gaspar galleries are filled with iconic images by world-renowned Native American artists as well as black-andwhite photographs from the 1950s and ’60s. Be sure to swing by Downtown in the summer, when international art fairs like Spanish Market and Indian Market take over the streets, with thousands of exhibitors showcasing one-of-a-kind, musthave works in every style and medium.

annual events local happenings throughout the year Downtown Santa Fe bustles with activity year-round, but certain days are particularly lively—and particularly noteworthy. Santa Fe’s oldest annual celebration, Fiesta de Santa Fe (santafefiesta.org), has been held every year since 1712 in honor of Don Diego de Vargas’s peaceful reconquering of the city 20 years earlier. From September 6–8, the Plaza and its surrounding blocks come alive with parades, markets, fairs, musical performances, and the annual burning of Zozobra (zozobra.com), a.k.a. Old Man Gloom, at Fort Marcy Park. On November 22, the annual Lighting of Christmas Decorations turns the Santa Fe Plaza into a must-see winter wonderland. The feel-good event includes live entertainment and a visit from Santa Claus. The following week, you can partake in (or simply watch) a reenactment of Mary and Joseph’s search for lodging during Las Posadas, a procession around the Plaza that begins and ends at the Palace of the Governors. From February 22–24, ARTSmart hosts ARTFeast (artfeast.com), where art is celebrated alongside food, home design, and fashion with tastings, tours, and shows. Proceeds from the event go to local youth art programs. On the Fourth of July, locals head downtown for the Rotary Club of Santa Fe’s Pancakes on the Plaza (pancakesontheplaza.com). Breakfast is served from 7 am until noon, and afternoon events include children’s activities, a silent auction, and an arts and crafts show. All proceeds go to local nonprofits. Spanish Market (spanishcolonialblog.org), July 26–28, kicks off the summer festival season with a weekend-long celebration of traditional Spanish art and offerings that include vendor booths, live music and dance, art demonstrations, and regional cuisine. Perhaps the most popular event of the year, Indian Market (swaia.org) attracts more than 100,000 people to its booths each summer. The annual event, slated for August 12–18, is the largest Native American arts market in the world. 16
“There is a vibrant energy exclusive to Downtown’s arts and museum district in the heart of historic Santa Fe. The city’s deep-rooted history and abounding culture are preserved and celebrated within this charming and diverse area. I find that musing on Downtown’s rich heritage and envisioning our ancestors who settled this beautifully preserved historic city is inevitable; Santa Fe is a deeply inspiring city. Downtown is the only place to be on the first Friday of every month for the festive atmosphere of the First Friday Art Walks from 5 to 7 pm. During the walks you can discover artwork from internationally recognized and renowned regional contemporary artists as well as masterworks from the 19th and 20th centuries and ethnographic treasures from around the world.” —Kathrine Erickson, owner, EVOKE Contemporary Above: Margarete Bagshaw, Between Two Worlds, oil on panel, 48 x 36".

Whether you’re a serious art collector or first-time buyer, you won’t leave Downtown empty-handed. “As a veteran traveler, I can count the number of truly distinctive downtown areas in the United States on one hand. Santa Fe, with its unique adobe architecture, is certainly among them. For the road-weary, Santa Fe’s downtown offers a week’s worth of dining, shopping, galleries, and museums within easy walking distance (not cab, not subway—actual walking!) of your accommodations. I will be back!”—Donna Schillinger, visitor from Arkansas

“Our view of the Plaza affords us the opportunity to enjoy all the changes every day has to offer. The beautiful Christmas lights in the trees and the farolitos along the roofs during the holidays, the flower baskets hanging in spring, the street musicians and performers year-round, and the constant changing of window displays in the shops and galleries are all a testament to the endurance of Santa Fe as a mecca for creative and artistic types. I especially enjoy seeing the Native American artists under the portal of the Palace of the Governors year-round, no matter what the weather, selling their jewelry and pottery laid out on blankets just as their ancestors did a century ago.” —Becky Lowndes, web manager, Packards on the Plaza

With its narrow streets, historic buildings, homemade wares, and mom-and-pop stores, Downtown Santa Fe offers a unique shopping experience, whether you’re a first-time visitor or a longtime local. The Plaza—a park-like, four-block square that dates to the early 1600s, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and sits at the end of the famous Old Santa Fe Trail—forms the heart of Downtown. The Palace of the Governors, the oldest occupied building in the country and the former seat of the one-time territory’s Spanish government, lines the Plaza’s north side. Through the city’s long-standing Native American Vendors Program, which traces its roots to 1936, Native American artisans sell handmade jewelry, pottery, metalwork, and more beneath the building’s portal every day of the week. On the square’s eastern side, Packards on the Plaza carries authentic Native American pottery, carvings, and weavings as well as high-end jewelry and home decor items. The south side of the square is home to Charlotte Santa Fe, which sells unique, interchangeable jewelry pieces with precious stones, sapphires, and diamonds. While shopping along the Plaza, be sure to take note of the historic buildings that surround you, like the former Woolworth building, which dates to 1935 and now houses the Five &
Dime General Store, and the New Mexico Museum of Art, built in 1917 and designed by noted architect Isaac Rapp. North of the Plaza, tree-lined Marcy Street houses small shops that offer everything from rare stationery to contemporary home goods. To the south, on Water Street, you’ll find cosmetics, sunglasses, sporting goods, and more. On East Palace, sandwiched between quiet courtyards and world-class restaurants, small stores carry gourmet, chileladen chocolate and high-end footwear.

The Western-fashion-lover can find authentic cowboy boots just south of the Plaza at Boots & Boogie, where the merchandise is custom-made by the store’s owner. Close by, the HatSmith offers personalized cowboy hats along with a range of accessories and hatbands, many made by local artists. For Southwestern gear, stop into Rocki Gorman, whose jewelry designs are carried nationwide in places like The National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City. The store, located inside La Fonda on the Plaza, also sells high-end designer clothing. Golden Eye and Things Finer carry a wide selection of striking jewelry pieces—from pendants and earrings to diamond rings and decorative accessories—while Rippel and Company sells Southwestern belts and buckles, specialty items like money clips, and fine jewelry. In between these shops, and up and down almost every small street, you’ll pass cafés, art galleries, specialty stores (think gourmet olive oil), furniture shops, and more. Antique and consignment shops are also a draw, with places such as the Real Deal Collection offering new or gently used designer bags, shoes, and luggage. So whether you’re a serious shopper or a casual browser, don’t miss stopping into one—or all—of Downtown’s memorable shops. You’re sure to find what you’re looking for, and, without a doubt, things you never even knew you needed.

Nick Hermes, Cannonball!, oil, 24 x 48" Nick Hermes is a rare gem—young, whip smart, extremely adept at his art, and he has something important to say. Don’t be fooled—his whimsical imagery often belies a wry perspective. The painting Cannonball!, for example, is at once amusing and an astute comment on the process of growing up: The little girl embodies the boy’s younger, more timid self while the elephant symbolizes the daring person the boy is to become. The latest offerings by Nick Hermes are available at Joe Wade Fine Art. Open year round, Monday–Saturday 10 am–5 pm and Sunday 10 am–4 pm.

Drawing from old masters Jan van Eyck, Albrecht Dürer, Pieter Bruegel, and Hieronymus Bosch—both in subject matter and in the ancient egg tempera and resin oil painting technique—the works of artist Daniel Martin Diaz possess a sincerity that foregrounds his deep devotion to revealing a higher meaning through painstaking craftsmanship. Through his application of a limited palette on distressed wood, his handmade wooden frames, and his expressive use of Latin text, Diaz’s images thrust us into another time and place. 142 Lincoln Ave, Ste 102 505-820-0788, popsantafe.com

EARLY LAST CENTURY, a group of writers— including Willa Cather and D. H. Lawrence— trekked to Santa Fe to form a literary colony, which, during its heyday from the 1920s to the 1940s, produced best-selling books and hundreds of articles, essays, and poems that helped promote Santa Fe as a popular tourist destination. Many of the sites where these writers once lived and gathered still stand as testaments to this remarkable literary era. A tour of “Literary Santa Fe” takes you to those homes and hangouts, revealing the rich legacy of Santa Fe’s golden literary era. Begin your tour at the Palace of the Governors (100 Palace). According to legend, Lew Wallace, who served as territorial governor of New Mexico from 1878 to 1881, wrote Ben-Hur: A Tale of Christ while living there, and his chair and writing table are still on view. Just a few steps away you’ll come to Sena Plaza, a courtyard located off Palace Avenue. This was once the home of the Villagra Book Shop, which opened in 1927. (Today the shop houses Gusterman Silversmiths.) The Villagra was a famous gathering spot for local and visiting writers, who often stopped by for tea, martinis, and gossip. The Plaza was the setting for Dorothy Hughes’s popular 1946 mystery Ride the Pink Horse, while La Fonda on the Plaza, across the street from the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi, lodged many famous visitors including Cather, who came up with the idea to write Death Comes for the Archbishop while she was a guest there. Walk a few blocks north of the Plaza to 342 Buena Vista, the home of poet Witter Bynner and currently the Inn of the Turquoise Bear. Bynner moved to Santa Fe in 1922 and expanded his property over the course of four decades. He even added a second-story addition called “The O. Henry Story,” which he financed by selling manuscripts written by the namesake author. Bynner was also wellknown for his legendary parties, which drew the likes of Robert Frost, W. H. Auden, Aldous Huxley, and Thornton Wilder. One final stop should be The Fray Angélico Chávez History Library (120 Washington), which contains copies of conquistador Gaspar Pérez de Villagrá’s 1610 epic poem Historia de la Nueva México as well as notebooks and papers of anthropologist Adolph Bandelier, namesake of Bandelier National Monument.

mucho gusto downtown dining is a feast for the palate
Part of the charm of Santa Fe—and certainly one of the reasons it’s a culinary capital of the Southwest—is the fact that this town of roughly 70,000 people is home to more than 200 restaurants. With such a healthy ratio of mouths to dining destinations, you’re never at a loss for edible options to titillate your taste buds. What’s more, many of the best eateries are just a stone’s throw from the 400-year-old Plaza— the center of Santa Fe’s history and culture. The variety of cuisines is another boon to Downtown’s dining scene. Whether you’re sampling Spanish fare at a tasty tapas restaurant, exploring norteño cooking at a decadesold establishment, loving la dolce vita at an Italian trattoria, or experiencing the hottest trend at the city’s newest restaurant, Santa Fe has something to woo every palate. And remember, a stroll around the picturesque Plaza is a great way to walk off any extra calories. Bon appétit—or, as we say in New Mexico, buen provecho!—John Vollertsen
