Because it is such an old city, Santa Fe, New Mexico is host to many attractions which revolve around its rich cultural past. Chief among the historical attractions are the San Miguel Mission (the country's oldest church), the Bandelier National Monument and the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Francis of Assisi. Older and perhaps even more impressive than these structures are the views surrounding them. The Santa Fe area is home to several parks where residents and guests alike may go to gain a better appreciation of the region's beautiful nature; the Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument, the Black Canyon Trail and New Mexico's highest peak, Santa Fe Baldy, are only a few examples of popular locations which offer an unforgettable aesthetic experience.
