One of my favorite places to visit when in Santa Fe. During this last time, I was walking up to snap a picture and a wedding was coming out at the same time. I teared up with how beautiful the setting was!!
Very close to Drury Plaza hotel and the La Fonda. When we were there it featured an outdoor display of many paintings from the Prado musuem in Madrid.
