“Built in 1610!!!”
Originally constructed in the early 17th century as Spain's seat of government for what is today the American Southwest, the Palace of the Governors chronicles the history of Santa Fe, as well as New Mexico and the region. This adobe structure, now the state's history museum, was designated a Registered National Historic Landmark in 1960 and an American Treasure in 1999. Located between Washington Street and Palace Avenue, today the Palace of the Governors is preserved for visitors to enjoy and houses the New Mexico History Museum, which is home to a renowned collection that includes artifacts from Kit Carson, the Civil War in Mexico, the Rough Riders, noted pieces of 19th Century furniture and decorative items, and the Segesser Hide Paintings.
Great marketplace and fascinating walking through looking at all the Native American artwork and talking to the artists. Nearby was a beautiful park area and Historic church. Well worth spending time in the area
