Old Town is exactly what it sounds like–Albuquerque’s original plaza, over 300 years old. It is rich in photographic opportunities from the authentic adobe architecture to people in costume, tourists, art galleries, restaurants–built around the central plaza and San Felipe de Neri Parish.
There is wonderful tile work throughout the area.
Old Town also has special events throughout the year, but especially during the balloon fiesta. It is where the “Breaking Bad” tours meet and is near many quality museums. Here is an earlier blog we assembled about the Sunday afternoon gunfights: https://albuquerquephotoblog.com/2016/06/10/12-old-town-gunfight/
