Historic Plaza in Santa Fe, New Mexico
It’s time to share some photos taken during a very brief stop in Santa Fe’s Historic Plaza this past March. I’ll start with Loretto Chapel and its “miraculous staircase.”
The plaza area features a statue of Kateri Tekakwitha (1656-1680), the first Native North American to be named a Roman Catholic saint. She was born and lived in an area in what is today New York state. (Don’t let the statue’s presence in Santa Fe give you the wrong impression that she was from the area.)
I had lunch at the Plaza Cafe, which claims to be Santa Fe’s oldest restaurant. Their pieces of pie are huge! That’s a slice of Key Lime.
