Old Town

Old Town, Albuquerque's first neighborhood, was founded in 1706 by Governor Francisco Cuervo y ValdezThis statue of Valdez was created by artist Buck McCain.

Paintings and murals can be found throughout the patios and balconies.
The brick paths may lead you to a fountain or hidden water feature.
Beautiful scenes may unfold around any corner.
Colorful statues and artwork abound.
This is historic San Felipe de Neri Church.
And on the day we visited, the park across the street from the church held a special surprise in the gazebo.Tango. The dance of love!
