About Santa Fe
|Satellite view showing Santa Fe, capital city of New Mexico in the United States. The city is located in the north-central part of the state, on the Santa Fe River in the northern Rio Grande valley. Santa Fe lies at an altitude of 7,000 feet (2,134 m) above sea level, making it the highest state capital in the United States.
Don Pedro de Peralta, at that time Governor of Spanish New Mexico founded the city at the foot of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains in 1607. Three years later in 1610, he made it the capital of the province.
So, Santa Fe is not only the highest state capital, but also the oldest continuously inhabited state capital in the US.
