For almost three centuries Albuquerque, New Mexico has been the crossroads of the Southwest. The area was Spanish territory in 1706 when Albuquerque was founded by Governor Francisco Curevo y Valdez. Only a short distance from the Rio Grande River, the town was organized around a central plaza known nowadays as Old Town. It was many centuries after the Spanish Conquistadores that Route 66 brought a new generation of adventurers.

Albuquerque is the largest city in New Mexico. According to the 2000 U.S. census the city’s population was 523,590 with over 840,000 in the metropolitan area. Albuquerque enjoys warm, sunny weather much of the year with crisp, cool winters. The city enjoys a beautiful and enviable site on the western flank of the Sandia Mountains, straddling the Rio Grande. It’s a dynamic, multicultural city that’s high-tech yet clearly has strong Spanish – Mexican roots.

Questa è una vista generale di New Mexico

New Mexico is a state located in the southwestern region of the United States. Inhabited by Native American populations for many centuries, it has also been part of the Imperial Spanish viceroyalty of New Spain, part of Mexico, and a U.S. territory. Among U.S. states, New Mexico has the highest percentage of Hispanics at 45% (2008 estimate), being descendants of Spanish colonists and recent immigrants from Latin America. It also has the third-highest percentage of Native Americans after Alaska and Oklahoma, and the fifth-highest total number of Native Americans after California, Oklahoma, Arizona, and Texas. The tribes represented in the state consist of mostly Navajo and Pueblo peoples. As a result, the demographics and culture of the state are unique for their strong Spanish, Mexican, and Native American cultural influences. At a population density of 16 per square mile, New Mexico is the sixth most sparsely inhabited U.S. state.
