Create an itinerary including Albuquerque Old Town
Take a stroll through Albuquerque Old Town, the city's historical district, which dates back to the Spanish founding of Albuquerque in 1706. The plaza is the focal point and the location of the San Felipe de Neri Church, built in 1793. Pop into one of the shops selling traditional Southwest crafts, art, and other items. You can treat yourself to ice cream on a shaded, wrought-iron bench or dive into the area's famed Mexican cuisine for something more substantial. To learn more about the rich history of the area, take a guided walking tour. Put Albuquerque Old Town into our Albuquerque trip itinerary builder site to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Albuquerque.

  • Easy walking distance from airbnb, plenty of wine and ber bars with friendly service. Limited restaurant options, but Church Street offers very sweet agave margaritas, and monster size burritos.

  • Was OK. A lot of shops but mostly the same items. We did find one shop that sold t-shirts for very reasonable proces. It is located near several other worthy sites. There is an historic church and lovely gift shop. There is also a nice little coffee shop with the only restroom we were able to find. It's basically a toilet in a closet. :-/
  • Local shops selling touristy things. Ice cream was very delicious and there are ghost 👻 tours available.
  • Nice areas for tourist to stop by and buy some locals artifacts. Many locals shop. Not much eatery.
  • Very beautiful place. It has little town center.
  • Was OK. Good BBQ place, good visit to church. Custom cars were a bonus find. Otherwise good place to spend $$$.
