"CORRALES, NEW MEXICO" Corrales by MarkJochim

Corrales Travel Guide: 14 reviews and 25 photos

Corrales is a small community just two miles north of Albuquerque and is bordered by Rio Rancho on the west. The village was originally an agricultural community and still contains winding dirt roads, corn fields, and apple orchards. It is also dotted with small art galleries, craft shops, and roadside fruit and vegetable stands.

For residents of urban areas of Albuquerque, Corrales offers a pleasant escape - summer road trips to the Farmer's Market are popular and attending the fall Harvest Festival is a must. There are several historic structures to visit including the Casa San Ysidro House Museum and the old San Ysidro Church. For out-of-town visitors, there are several nice bed and breakfasts in a addition to a host of world-class restaurants.

Corrales was founded in 1706 and contains many examples of adobe Territorial Pueblo style architecture.
