Explore the Beauty Behind Santa Fe's Adobe Walls

The flowers are in bloom at The Madeleine Bed & Breakfast Inn, providing the perfect spot for weary travelers to kick back and relax after a day of touring Santa Fe.   While our historic home and gardens are always open to the public, many of Santa Fe's most stunning homes and gardens are hidden from view behind protective adobe walls.  This July you will have an opportunity to visit eight of these notable homes and gardens, when the Santa Fe Garden Club offers it famous tour: Behind Adobe Walls.  Four spectacular homes are featured on two consecutive Tuesdays, showcasing historical homes, impressive private art collections, and a variety of memorable gardens.  

The tour, which began in 1941 (with a break for the war), is the oldest and one of the most prestigious of its kind in the country. Because it is so very popular, with tickets selling out every year, you will want to make your reservations as soon as possible.  This year's tours are Tuesday, July 23 and Tuesday, July 30, 2013, with buses departing from Hotel Santa Fe at 12:30pm and returning at 4:45pm.  The price of each tour is $75 per person, per tour, with proceeds benefiting various horticultural and conservation projects throughout the state of New Mexico.  A prix-fixe lunch is available at Hotel Santa Fe from 11am-noon for an additional $20.
