Alternatively known as La Mesilla and Old Mesilla, Mesilla is located in New Mexico's historic Dona Ana County. This charming village which was incorporated in 1848 contains a number of National Historic Landmark buildings which have been wonderfully preserved over the centuries. Somewhat stuck in a time warp, the tiny alleys, old public buildings, shaded areas and Old Town taverns have enchanted tourists who can't help but fall in love with Mesilla.
Las Cruces has rightfully earned its nickname of "The City of the Crosses" because of the numerous crosses that dot the entire length and breadth of the city. Lying between the monumental Doña Ana Mountains, Picacho Peak and the Robledo Mountains, this city was invaded by the Spanish Settlers in 1598; Catholic influences are still very visible through architecture. Museums, orchestras, annual festivals, historic water tanks, fountains, parks and libraries attract visitors who never fail to be fascinated with this glowing city.
