Enjoy the stillness, magic and beauty as you Discover Abiquiú

Welcome to Discover Abiquiú! Whether you are a first-time visitor or you call this village home, you will discover the spirit of Abiquiú each and every day.

 

As the light changes on the red cliffs, as Pedernal stands guard over Abiquiu Lake, as you discover the history, culture, and arts in the area, or as you hit the hiking trails - you will find that this is a very special place. Come and see why Georgia O'Keeffe fell in love with Abiquiú!

Located between Santa Fe and Taos, the Village of Abiquiú, should be on everyone's bucket list. Georgia O’Keeffe made Abiquiú famous, and today you can still see the vistas represented in her paintings. Rich in inspiration, Abiquiú is a thriving artists' colony. 

Dinosaurs once roamed the lands and many of their fossils have been found in the area. Native Americans, Spanish explorers, and cattle wrestlers all called this land home. Abiquiú is thought to be the beginning of The Old Spanish Trail, linking Santa Fe and Los Angeles.

 

Our most famous resident was Georgia O’Keeffe, an American artist who began spending time here in the late 1920's. She eventually made Abiquiú her home  and  made it famous through her paintings. Today, you can still see the vistas painted and loved so dearly. It’s no surprise, but Hollywood found Abiquiú and many films have been produced here, including Magnificent Seven; the 4th Indiana Jones movie, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull; Cowboys and Aliens; City Slickers; Wyatt Earp; The Last Outlaw and more.
