Order My 2017 Santa Fe Travel Guide

History is all too often translated into a collection of stories about people and events that are far removed from our own present lives. Many times, history is seen as something that is read from a dry book or a dull lecture rather than being experienced through active questioning and tangible discovery. The caretakers of El Rancho de las Golondrinas believe that history should be experienced in a different way through hands-on experiences that brings history alive through fun adventure.

El Rancho de las Golondrinas (The Ranch of the Swallows) invites visitors to  travel back in time and immerse themselves into the past; 300 years into the past to be exact. The period between 1710 and 1930 are interpreted by costumed docents eager to share their expertise and knowledge with visitors. Visiting the ranch at any time of the season is bound to be a wonderful experience but one of the best times to visit is during one of their ten fun-filled festivals and events throughout the season that suit a wide variety of interests. The ranch is truly a wonderful repository of craftsmanship, history and celebration.
