Instituto Cervantes Albuquerque>> With over 200,000 students per year, Instituto Cervantes is the largest institution in the world dedicated to teaching Spanish. Instituto Cervantes Albuquerque offers a variety of Spanish courses for individuals and groups and organizes many exciting cultural events throughout the year.

From wikipedia:
"Barelas is one of Albuquerque’s oldest neighborhoods. Originally settled during the Spanish Colonial period it has gone through numerous cultural and economic changes over the years. This includes its early colonial history as a significant river crossing route for the El Camino Real and its development as a thriving farming community in the early 1800’s. Early development took place in and around the farms adjacent to the swamps of the Rio Grande and three irrigation ditches that served the community, the primary one being the Acequia Madre de Barelas.

The arrival of the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railroad to Albuquerque in the 1880’s effectively transformed the small farming village into the largest industrial complex in the territory. The company built a station house, switchyards, car shops, roundhouses for locomotive repair, warehouses, and office buildings on the eastern edge of the Barelas community. As a result lands around the original town site of Barelas began to flourish with commerce and housing as the railroad industry employed as many as 1500 people during the height of railroad construction."

THANK YOU ALBUQUERQUE!!

We are overwhelmed with joy! Big thanks to all of the Burquenos and visitors that came out to the 2018 Holiday Market! Together we welcomed over 30,000 visitors over the weekend, and want to sincerely thank everyone for their support.  With everyone's generous support we were able to expand market infrastructure, parking and shuttle options. Please visit our Facebook page for many photos of the event!
