Santa Fe, or ‘Holy Faith’ in Spanish, is the capital of the New Mexico. Santa Fe is the fourth largest city in the state and has a population of 84,683 in 2019. It is part of the huge metropolitan area of Albuquerque-Santa Fe-Las Vegas combined statistical area. Santa Fe is known to be the oldest capital state capital in the U.S. for being founded back in 1610 as the former capital of Nuevo Mexico.
The city’s pride lies in the various art galleries and installations, making it one of the world’s great art cities and UNESCO’s Creative Cities Network. Even today, Santa Fe’s full name is still La Villa Real de la Santa Fe San Francisco de Asis or ‘The Royal Town of the Holy Faith of Saint Francis of Assisi’. It was first inhabited by early settlers sometime after 900 CE.
The Santa Fe Plaza has served as the city’s cultural center since its inception in 1610. Today, surrounded by numerous ancient structures such as the San Miguel Chapel and the Palace of the Governors, the plaza remains the epicenter of Santa Fean events ranging from live music to the September Santa Fe Fiesta.
The Palace of the Governor used to be the capitol of New Mexico and was open to the public earlier than the other buildings in the city. It was a structure made of adobe and was the original site of the Pueblo Revolt in 1680.
Every autumn particularly in the second week of September, the Fiesta de Santa Fe is held. It was according to the first Fiesta council’s proclamation on September 16, 1712 that this type of feast was celebrated in New Mexico. Some of the highlights of the feast include Novena masses, Knighting and coronation of Don Diego de Vargas and La Reina de Santa Fe.
