History of the Duke City

Mont-cortezFounded by conquistador explorers over 300 years ago, The City Of Albuquerque, aka Burque, aka The Duke City, is the largest city in the state of New Mexico and one of the oldest cities in the United States.  For centuries The Duke City has been the center of culture, trade, and economics in the Land of Enchantment.  A proud melting pot of Hispanic, African American, Anglo, and Native American cultures, this city is truly unique in sights, sounds, and flavor.
