  • On the North side of the Plaza is the Palace of the Governors. Crafts for sale are displayed in the "walkway." Beautiful bowls, pottery, jewelry, and more.

  • Great exhibits on Santa Fe history, the Japanese internment camp, and currently hosting an interesting photography exhibition.
  • If you are short of time visiting Santa Fe, I would recommend skipping this place. Tour guide showed bias and took a cheap shot at Pope Francis, who has absolutely nothing to do with the history of this place.
