Tour begins in Old Town, anchored by the central plaza with cobblestone streets and adobe huts housing restaurants and shops.
We will explore hidden patios, visit the church, and/or shop for unique gifts.
We continue north on Rio Grande Blvd which follows the river through the valley occupied by Pueblo Indians, Spanish settlers and still is home to farms, and wine growers.
We will visit historic Los Poblanos Lavender Farm and shop. We will stop at the fabulous Tuscany style Casa Rondeña Winery.
