Santa Fe, New Mexico

According to Countryaah.com, Santa Fe is a city and capital of the state of New Mexico in the United States. The city has 84,612 residents (U.S. Census, 2018) and forms a larger metropolitan area with around 180,000 residents.

Located on the Santa Fe River in the northern Rio Grande Valley, the city is at 2194 meters above sea level the highest state capital in the United States. Santa Fe is New Mexico's fourth largest city, the oldest state capital in the United States, and the nation's third oldest city.

Full name is "La Villa Real de Santa Fe de San Francisco de Asis" (The Royal City of St. Francis of Assis's Sacred Faith). "Santa Fe" means "Holy Faith."


The city has had a steady population increase since 1920. 78.9 percent of the population is white and 48.7 percent Hispanics (of Spanish or Latin American origin).

Economics and culture

Tourism is the main trade route, partly due to the dry climate in summer and a ski area a few miles north of the city in winter.

Santa Fe has several historic churches and buildings, and is both known for the Spanish style and architecture of the pueblo population.

Museums and archaeological excavations are linked to a rich indigenous culture. The Palace of the Governors (built in 1610) and former seat of the Colony of New Mexico, was restored as a museum in 1914. Other museums in the center include the New Mexico Museum of Art, the Museum of Contemporary Native Art and the New Mexico History Museum. Museum and Indian Arts and Culture and several other museums are located in the Museum Hill area.

The San Miguel Chapel was built in the 17th century, rebuilt in 1710 and restored in 1955. Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi was rebuilt in 1869–1887 where an older church had stood.

The renowned Santa Fe Opera (SFO) opened in 1957 and hosts concerts each year in June, July and August. About the same time, the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival is held.

Santa Fe International Folk Art Market is held every second week of July in July.

Traditional pueblo architecture and Spanish building style were protected in 1958 and are distinctive building styles in Santa Fe.


Indigenous people lived for thousands of years in numerous pueblo villages along the Rio Grande. The first white colonized area in 1598 and the leader Don Juan de Oñate founded Santa Fe de Nuevo Mexico as a province of New Spain. The city of Santa Fe was founded by Spanish Governor Don Pedro de Peralta in 1610 and made it the provincial capital.

Santa Fe was evacuated after a pueblo revolt in 1680, but was recaptured under the leadership of Don Diego de Vargas in 1692. The city became Mexican in 1824. In the years that followed, it was developed a road train route (Santa Fe Trail) between Independence in Missouri and Santa Fe. During the war against Mexico, the city was occupied in 1846. In 1848, New Mexico was surrendered to the United States and Santa Fe became the capital of New Mexico territory in 1852. Santa Fe gained a railroad connection in 1880 and the city continued mainly as a trading center for ranchers, farmers and indigenous peoples.. Santa Fe became the state capital of New Mexico in 1912.
