Santa Fe style One of the first things you notice about Downtown Santa Fe—whose heart and soul is the 404-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 PuebloSpanish- and Territorial-style architecture—styles that still dominate the roughly twosquare-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 strolling on and around Downtown’s Plaza. 12

“Many historical spaces in the United States are just that—preserved environments evoking the past. The Plaza in Santa Fe is unique for being a vibrant living space; from its beginning it has been a nucleus for gathering and socializing for the people of Santa Fe as well as for visitors. The Plaza is a place where history is alive and evolving.” —Josef Díaz, curator of Southwest and Mexican colonial art and history collections, New Mexico History Museum

“What I love about downtown Santa Fe is the mix of Indian and Hispanic cultures reflected in the architecture, beautiful churches, and historic sites. Its small-town character offers cosmopolitan sophistication with a wide variety of galleries and unique retail stores—all in easy walking distance. Many excellent restaurants are competing for your attention. Santa Fe is a feast for your senses in every way!”  —Dorothee Maier, owner, Charlotte Fine Jewelry

DAVID ROBIN

At one moment the Santa Fe Plaza in the heart of Downtown can be ever so serene, while at another it’s bustling with visitors, shopkeepers, and an assortment of characters that reminds you of the eclectic nature of Santa Fe. Whether you’re a local or a visitor, I encourage you to visit the Plaza early in the morning and sit quietly as the town comes to life around you. Keep in mind that the Plaza and downtown area have been enabling this ritual for at least 400 years. And before that, Native Americans were bringing the area to life as well. There’s an extraordinary beauty and change of light as the sun comes peeking over the Sangre de Cristos and casts a lovely glow through the old and cherished trees. Over the centuries, the Plaza has been the setting for conducting business, forging new friendships, and celebrating romance. It’s still a local tradition for newlyweds to cruise around the Plaza in celebration of their marriage. The Plaza has also been the site of fights and executions. What a history. New history happens every day, and every day (and night) on the Plaza is a new opportunity for each of us to have our own historical moment.

“Downtown Santa Fe has centuries of history, portals and brick sidewalks, and a large 19th-century French-style cathedral basilica beside a peaceful park within sight of my shop. People from all over the world pass through my doors, most recently the conductor of [Ukraine’s] Odessa [Philharmonic Orchestra] and his family. He came because his grandfather was T.

annual events local happenings throughout the year Downtown Santa Fe bustles with activity year-round, but certain days are particularly lively—and particularly noteworthy. 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 26–27, 2014, 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, being held August 18–24, 2014, is the largest Native American arts market in the world. 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 5–7, 2014, the Plaza and its surrounding blocks come alive with parades, markets, fairs, and musical performances. Just before Fiesta, on August 29, revelers enjoy the annual burning of Zozobra (burnzozobra.com), a.k.a. Old Man Gloom, at Fort Marcy Park. On November 28, 2014, 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. Two weeks later, on December 14, 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 20–22, 2015, ARTsmart hosts ARTfeast (artfeast.org), 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.

treasure hunting shopping along Santa Fe’s storied streets

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. 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. On the Plaza’s eastern side, Shiprock Santa Fe sells contemporary and historic Native American art, including pottery, jewelry, textiles, and more, while the 4,000-square-foot Santa Fe Dry Goods carries clothes, accessories, jewelry, and more by renowned designers from around the world. The south side of the square is home to Charlotte Fine Jewelry, which sells unique, interchangeable jewelry pieces with precious stones, sapphires, and diamonds. 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, small stores carry gourmet, chile-laden chocolate and high-end footwear. 24

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. The 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.


literary Santa Fe a dedicated walking tour reveals a rich writerly past 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 well-known 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.

Make the O Keeffe part of your Santa Fe experience VISIT THE GEORGIA O’KEEFFE HOME & STUDIO The Georgia O’Keeffe Home and Studio in Abiquiu offers a variety of tours of the property that O’Keeffe lived in for 35 years. To the extent possible, the house remains as she left it in 1984, when she moved to Santa Fe. The house and surrounding views were a great source of inspiration to her. She produced iconic works featuring the patio and black door, the cottonwood trees along the Chama River, the White Place, and the Road to Santa Fe. Tours require a reservation: 5O5.685.4539 or okeeffemuseum.org

Native Americans sell art and crafts at the Palace of the Governors, which is a Spanish Colonial building located a hundred feet from a ridiculous miniature Washington Monument look-alike in the center of the Plaza. Who won? Who cares? It’s still just plain fun to wear your boots and a nice piece of Zuni turquoise and imagine what it was like to crave a whiskey and a bath (among other indulgences) at the end of a long dusty cattle drive, and then wonder why there’s accordion music stuck in your head.” —David Coulson, general manager, Cafe Pasqual’s

“Owning a shop in La Fonda and being a part of one of the most creative and architecturally striking cities in the world is such a treat. I love the shapes and colors of the buildings against the New Mexico sky and the different scents for each season—chile roasting and the piñon fires in fall and the clean, fresh smell of sage and lavender in spring and summer. The joy of guests as they wander the Plaza and fall in love with the history and beauty of the true Southwest is what makes living and working in Santa Fe so special to me.”—Rocki Gorman, owner, Rocki Gorman

July 11–27, 2014

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 404-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 decades-old 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
