old time meeting/gathering place

Now a place to sit, relax and listen to street musicians. One side is lines with many local jewelry and souvenir vendors. Many other shops and restaurant's surrounding it.

There are some interesting shops at Sena Plaza, to be sure, and the place is cloaked in historic character. We really should have paused to explore the place more thoroughly, but we just breezed through after taking our lunch at The Shed. Giving Sena Plaza short shrift is a mistake we’ll be sure to correct on our next visit to... More

Historic areas with lots of shops, some touristy and others very nice. Right off the main square which is a very nice area with lots of museums and shops.

After walking around the area for a while we discovered Sena Plaza at 125 E. Palace St. This plaza was built in 1864 with more than 33 rooms. Today it's home to many shops but when you move to the center, behind the shops, there is a square that is an outdoor restaurant. The fountain produces a lovely backdrop of... More

A lot of shops, many with the same items. A few cute boutiques are mixed in. Christmas shop is great! The 2-story shopping area is nice too. Need more variety of shops, more restaurants. I was there on the eve of a holiday and it was empty. Tourism could improve greatly in this area. But you are just 1 street... More

Stopped at La Casa Sena restaurant In the plaza for afternoon drinks and appetizer. The plaza is beautiful and a very nice place for a break during a busy day in Santa Fe!

The Sena Plaza is an unexpected and tranquil location that takes the visitor away from other shops. There are some unusual shops around this plaza, but the area gives one a sense of older Santa Fe with inner courtyards. Worth the steps from the main plaza roughly a block away.

What a nice surprise to find this wine shop with a huge selection and moderate pricing, given the location. It was recommended to us by a local for its selection of Spanish wines, but it also had a good selection of Italians and, or course, French and Californian. I actually saw one wine from a winery not far from our... More
