New Mexico

According to itypetravel, New Mexico (English New mexico; Spanish Nuevo México) is a mountainous state in the southwestern United States, one of the so-called Mountain States. The population is 1.819 million people (36th place among the states; 2000 data). The capital is Santa Fe and the largest city is Albuquerque. Other major cities are Las Cruces, Roswell, Farmington and Rio Rancho.

Official nickname – “Land of Wonders” (Eng. Land of Enchantment)


The area of ​​New Mexico is 315.194 thousand km 2 (5th place among the states of the country), and almost all of this area is occupied by land. New Mexico borders Colorado to the north, Oklahoma and Texas to the east, Texas and the Mexican states of Chihuahua and Sonora to the south, and Arizona to the west. Through the central part of the state are the ridges of the Rocky Mountains – San Juan and Sangre de Cristo. The Colorado Plateau is to the west and the Great Plains to the east. The main rivers of the state are the Rio Grande and its tributary, the Pecos. Both flow in deep gorges. The climate is continental, arid.


Before the arrival of Europeans, Indian tribes lived in New Mexico, creating the Folsom, Sandia, and Anasazi cultures. By the time the Spaniards arrived, the Apache, Comanche, Navajo and Pueblo Indians lived here.

In 1536, the Spaniards Cabeza de Vaca and Estabanico appeared here. In the late 1530s, Franciscan missionaries came here in search of the legendary gold reserves of Cibola. In 1540-1542, the expedition of Francisco Vasquez de Coronado visited here. In 1598, the Spanish conquistadors founded the settlement of San Juan Pueblo on the Rio Grande, in 1609 the conquistador Pedro de Peralta built the settlement of Santa Fe at the foot of the Sangre de Cristo mountains. In 1680, the Pueblo Indians rebelled against the domination of the Spanish newcomers. In 1706, the city of Albuquerque arose on the site of scattered settlements.

In 1803 Napoleon sold northern New Mexico to the United States. In 1821, the territory of New Mexico became part of the Mexican state. At the same time, merchants from the southern states of the United States paved the way to Santa Fe.

In 1846, during the US war with Mexico, American General Stephen Kearney occupied Santa Fe and, as a result of negotiations with the Mexicans, gained control of the region.

In 1850 (as a result of the so-called Compromise of 1850) the Territory of New Mexico was formed. It was subsequently enlarged in 1853 as a result of the Gadsden Purchase. The final boundaries of New Mexico were established in 1863.

At the beginning of the Civil War, most of the New Mexico Territory was under the control of the southerners, but after the victory of the Union army at the Battle of Glorieta Pass in March 1862, power here passed to the northerners.

January 6, 1912 New Mexico became the 47th US state.

During World War II, New Mexico became a testing ground for atomic weapons – on July 16, 1945, the first test of an atomic bomb was carried out in the desert near Alamogordo.


According to the Bureau of Economic Analysis, in 2003 the state’s GDP was 57 billion. There are agricultural enterprises, and irrigation is developed. The role of tourism and the service sector is significant.
