On behalf of the City Council, Administration, and Staff, it is my sincere pleasure to welcome you and to invite you to let us know how we can be of service. Española is quickly becoming the city at the center of it all in northern New Mexico. Rich in culture and history (Española was the first Capitol City in America), the city is also leading the way into the future on major issues including transportation, water planning, and more. Seated in the beautiful Española Valley between the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and Jemez Mountains, Española is a wonderful place to work, play, and to call home. Relax and enjoy your visit to our site, and let us know if we can be of help to you. We invite you to visit us and see just why there is so much to love about Española!
Mayor of the City of Española, Alice A. Lucero

The Plaza de Española is the historical and cultural center of the city. Within easy walking distance are four attractions that serve to teach and demonstrate our heritage. The Mision Museum y Convento is a replica of the original mission built by the Spanish at the nearby San Gabriel settlement in 1598. The history of the area from ancient times is depicted on reredos (altar screens) produced by the finest regional artists (see image on right).
The Bond House Museum is a circa 1910 home listed on both the National and New Mexico Register of Historic Places. In addition to historic photographs and artifacts it is used to display the works of various local artists.
The Veteran’s Wall was completed in 2003 to honor the over 2,000 men and women from northern New Mexico who have served honorably in the military. The memorial includes a reflecting pool and the "Walk of Honor" and is adorned with over 100 rose bushes.
The Plaza Fountain is characteristic of fountains found in different areas throughout Spain. The arches over the fountain represent the architecture found at the Alhambra in Granada, Spain. These designs celebrate the Spanish influence in northern New Mexico.
