Welcome! We invite you to take a journey to the past at "The Ranch of the Swallows". This historic rancho, now a living history museum, dates from the early 1700s and was an important paraje or stopping point along the famous Camino Real, the Royal Road from Mexico City to Santa Fe, NM. Experience the life of another time in a location unlike any other in America.
Las Golondrinas is 15 miles south of Santa Fe and 45 miles north of Albuquerque, off Interstate 25. From Santa Fe, take I-25 Exit 276. From Albuquerque, Exit 276B.
Go right off the exit, so that you are headed north on NM 599 (Santa Fe Bypass); take your first left at the light (West Frontage Road); travel roughly 1/2 miles on the frontage road and go right on Los Pinos Road; the museum is 3.2 miles down Los Pinos Road on the left-hand side of the road.
