Scroll down for brief descriptions of neighborhoods outside Santa Fe to the south, along Highway 285 South (or click on names on the map). Northeast within Santa Fe City Limits

The northeast of Santa Fe, within city limits, combines the pleasures of quiet living with the conveniences of location. On every tree-lined street are examples of newer, award-winning architecture and well-established, older adobes . In addition to the famous Plaza , this area includes all the land reaching up to the Jemez and the Sandias. Newer developments appear on your left and right as you climb in altitude into the tree-studded Sangre de Christos. Historically this area was for many years the center of life in Santa Fe. On one side of the Plaza stretches the Palace of the Governors . Constructed in the early 17th century as Spain's seat of government, the Palace of the Governors in Santa Fe chronicles and documents the history of the city, as well as New Mexico and the region. Stroll down East Palace Avenue past galleries, shops and lovely hotels. Ski Basin Road -boasting mouthwatering east and northern views, and some of the most distinguished newer homes in Santa Fe, The Summit and Sierra del Norte are two of the city's premier developments. Also on the Ski Basin Road are Cerros Colorados and the older community of Hyde Park Estates , both with wonderful homes and incredible views.

The Santa Fe Plaza - Historically, a plaza was the center of each Hispanic village, where people could come to relax under shady trees, hear music, socialize and hear the latest news. Santa Fe's plaza has a large variety of shops, art galleries and restaurants. What makes the Santa Fe Plaza intriguing is the Palace of Governors, where the conquistadores, the Spanish conquerors of the Native Americans, placed the seat of their territorial government. Built in 1610 as a fort, it is now wonderful history museum. Another tradition that Santa Fe has become known for is the Native American artists that sit under the long, shady portal and sell their handmade jewelry, pottery and other works of art. All items sold by the Indians under the portal are made by either the vendor you're talking to, or a member of his or her family.

Cross of the Martyrs - A monument just a few blocks from the Plaza honors 21 Franciscan Friars killed in the 1680 Pueblo Revolt. The site also provides a majestic overview of downtown Santa Fe. Located in the 600 block of Paseo de Peralta.
