The “grande dame” of Santa Fe hotels, La Fonda is just steps from museums, galleries, shops and restaurants. A showcase for the work of local artisans, La Fonda is loved for many of the same reasons that Santa Fe is loved: award-winning pueblo-style Spanish architecture and décor, luxurious, inviting ambience, and warm hospitality.

El Rancho de las Golondrinas
We invite you to take a journey to the past at "The Ranch of the Swallows". This historic rancho, now a living history museum, dates from the early 1700s and was an important paraje or stopping point along the famous Camino Real, the Royal Road from Mexico City to Santa Fe, New Mexico. Experience the life of another time in a location unlike any other in America.

Georgia O'Keeffe Museum
The Museum’s collection of over 2990 works comprises 1149 O’Keeffe paintings, drawings, and sculpture, including promised gifts and extended loans. The Georgia O'Keeffe Museum is the largest single repository of O'Keeffe's work in the world. Throughout the year, visitors can see a changing selection of at least 50 of these works. In addition, the Museum presents special exhibitions that are either devoted entirely to O’Keeffe’s work or combine examples of her art with works by her American modernist contemporaries. Over 140 artists have been exhibited at the Museum including Frank Stella, Jackson Pollack, Andy Warhol and Arthur Dove.

Museum of Spanish Colonial Art
The Spanish Colonial Arts Society collections were initiated in 1928. Today with 3,000 objects, the collections are the most comprehensive compilation of Spanish Colonial art of their kind.
