ROUNDHOUSE (the capitol)


Paseo de Peralta and Old Santa Fe Trail, Santa Fe, NM 87501
The Capitol is one of the best kept secrets of Santa Fe. With more than 450 pieces of art, the capitol is the largest gallery in Santa Fe. From a bird’s-eye view, the Roundhouse resembles the Zia sun symbol, which is also emblazoned on the New Mexico state flag. The image, which originated at Zia Pueblo, incorporates elements representing the sun’s rays, the four directions, the four seasons, and the four phases of life. The State Seal of New Mexico, carved in stone, hangs above each of the Roundhouse’s four entrance wings.
