Santa Fe has long been a jewel on the map of the adventurous traveler. For those seeking beauty, inspiration and transformation it’s a natural choice. Its high desert landscape and high altitude light combine to create a magical beauty and healing tranquility.
Founded in the early 1600’s, Santa Fe is the oldest capital city in the United States. Santa Fe has been a mecca of trade, art, healing, and spirituality. All of these traditions continue with integrity to this day.
Situated in the foothills of the Southern Rockies, in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, Santa Fe is a city that continues to draw rich meaning from its landscape and dramatic skies.
The human population is a complex weaving of three distinct heritages: first the ancient and enduring native Pueblo tribes, then the Spanish descendants of the Conquistadors, and finally an Anglo population dating from both the mountain men of the 19th Century and a second wave from the 1960s hippie communes of Easy Rider fame. These three cultures have mixed to form a fascinating and sophisticated blend of artists, healers, and master chefs unique to the United States.
Santa Fe is home to more than a dozen major museums, the world-renowned Santa Fe Opera, and hundreds of fine art galleries and unique retailers. Santa Fe currently ranks as the third largest art market in the country, following New York City and Los Angeles.
The Plaza and Canyon Road, two favorite destinations for locals and tourists alike, showcase silver and leather work, Native American hand-made treasures, and world-renowned art. One of the most well known of these artists, Georgia O’Keeffe, lived in nearby Abiquiu and was famous for her depictions of this magical landscape of mesas and colorful canyons.
With more than 320 days of sunshine, Santa Fe is host to a variety of outdoor activities including hiking, mountain biking, rafting, fishing, golf and downhill skiing. Santa Fe’s cultural diversity, striking vistas and its sage-fragrance stirring of healing energies make it the ideal setting for your Sunrise Springs wellness experience.
