If you start at the Old Town entrance near the Old Town Transit Center, head eastbound through the grounds, and exit out on Twiggs Street you’ll find the Church of the Immaculate Conception.
Head back toward Old Town after you photograph the church and you’ll see the east side entrance welcoming you back.
In between you’ll find lots of interesting subjects for your camera.
Subjects range from traditional American architecture of the period to buildings of a decidedly Mexican flavor.
Make sure you spend some time exploring the central park and the buildings that surround it.
You’ll also find here some very beautiful flora.
There’s even a supposedly haunted house. That would be the Robinson Rose House, which now serves as the Old Town Visitor Information Center.
Near the park also stands the Colorado House, built in 1851 and having served as a hotel and saloon with a gambling joint. Today it houses the Wells, Fargo & Co. History Museum.
On Wednesday we’re going to enjoy the colorful Día de Muertos decorations. If you look closely at the following photograph you’ll get just a small taste of what to expect — the skeletal corpse in the red dress manning the hostes stand of the restaurant.
By the way, if you’re reading this and other material authored by me on The Destinary website, this post was not “Posted on (fill in the date) | By destinary” as they’ve been erroneously claiming; this material was in fact reposted. The Destinary have also been claiming the right to do so, without links back to the original and without full attribution (“by RDoug” and a nonworking link is not proper attribution) with a rather bizarre interpretation of U.S. copyright law in which they claim I’m responsible for changing my RSS feed settings so that they cannot skim my material for commercial purposes. That would make reading my blog less convenient for you, which I’m not willing to do. As such, I’ll be running this little diatribe on all travel related posts until they cease and desist, along with this:
