History & Culture

Explore Santa Fe's rich history and culture
For 400+ years, Santa Fe has improved with age. The nation's oldest capital city experienced waves of migrations along the three trails that led here—and more recently via the rails, Route 66 and the interstate. Artists, chefs, wellness experts, and other creative dreamers all bring their culture, talents and experience with them and when they meet Santa Fe’s unique blend of Anglo, Spanish and Native Cultures against a backdrop of the Sangre de Cristo mountains’ majesty and the spectacular sunsets over the Jemez range—nothing short of magic transpires.

The early Native American inhabitants called it "Dancing Ground of The Sun"; while the founding frontiersman at the turn of the 20th century referred to it as "The City Different." Those nicknames still hold true today, as you’ll see for yourself.
