Albuquerque has always been a center of culture and trade, luring travelers from every direction with its promise of charm and commerce. When the fabled railway called the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe arrived in 1880, it certified the city as a growing area of business opportunity. By 1926, Route 66 also passed through Albuquerque, bringing with it more tourists than ever before. But no matter how bustling the city became, its people retained a desire for a graceful and enjoyable lifestyle.

Sip a tall glass of iced water with a sprig of mint and then luxuriate your way through a Swedish or sport/therapeutic massage. You’ll feel like a million dollars! Encantado!
