The Historic Guadalupe District is a Santa Fe neighborhood that falls between St. Francis, Guadalupe, Alameda and Paseo de Peralta. The area is interlaced and anchored by the vibrant and Pedestrian-Friendly Santa Fe Railyard District. The Railyard takes its name from the old mission-style Train Depot for the Rail runner commuter train and, when it’s running, the Santa Fe Southern.
Guadalupe Street was an old roadway to Mexico. Travelers stopped at the lovely, landmark church, Santuario de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe, built in the late 1700s to water their horses and to pray to St. Francis for safe passage.

Quality of life amenities abound. Within blocks of the core is a range of retail stores, services, and restaurants as well as two cinemas: the luxe Violet Crown Movieplex and the small but potent Jean Cocteau, with an intelligent, nimble roster of offerings. In the summer, there are concerts and outdoor events under the water tower. On Saturdays and Tuesdays, the lively and beloved Farmers’ Market, often hailed as one of the top Farmers’ Markets in the country, attracts crowds.
Within the ten acres of open space, protected in perpetuity by a conservation easement, is a park beautifully landscaped with over 300 trees and thousands of drought-resistant plantings. There’s also a Childrens’ Play Area and Outdoor Performance Space, and a public demonstration garden, when the 400 year acequia is flowing.
The Santa Fe Railyard Arts District also includes an excellent selection of contemporary galleries and museums. SITE Santa Fe and El Museo Culturale are found here as is one of our favorite galleries, EVOKE Contemporary.
