Santa Fe Revisited is an in-depth and unique tour of this nation’s oldest capital city. The narrative begins with a panoramic view of Santa Fe and the history of the descendants of the Ancestral Puebloans (Anasazi), who migrated to the region around 1100 AD. The chronological tour unfolds as the first European (Spanish) settlement in the Southwest is established in 1610. The conflict that arises from the melding of these two cultures results in the Pueblo Revolt of 1680, forever changing the history of New Mexico. More conflicts arise when the Mexican and American governments take control in 1821 and 1846, respectively, and with the American Civil War in 1862. Fast forward to the 20th century and Santa Fe becomes world renowned as a major cultural center, a mecca of spiritual transformation and home to the atomic age.
The scenic three-hour tour of Santa Fe recaps four hundred years of history narrated by Ana Pacheco, the former City Historian of Santa Fe and the author of eight books on New Mexico history, whose family settled in Santa Fe in 1692.
