Nice place to spend an afternoon shopping and learning about some of the local history and culture of Southern New Mexico. Don't miss some of the fantastic shops that are on the side streets off the plaza. If you are interested in handwoven products stop at the Old Tortilla Factory building on Avenida de Mesilla and visit Tres Manos Weaving... More

Old Mesilla Village is a small square of quaint shops filled with local artisan crafts, candy and chocolates, jewlery, dishes, clothing,... One of my favorite spots is the Nambe Mills store. If you are a Nambe fan or collector, don't miss this shop!

We were not aware of this small village at all until it was suggested we visit by locals at the railroad museum. This is a small historical town square, and old town, that had an important part in the history of the United States. There are a variety of shops and eateries in and around or just off the square...

A quiet and beautiful lil town. The plaza on Sunday's has a "artists fair" where you can find beautiful treasures. The prices are reasonable. You can find some shops with specialty items. It's only 45 minutes from El Paso, Texas off of 1-10. Parking is scarce so you might have to park away from the plaza but worth the walk.

The town square architecture has been beautifully maintained. If one reads the colorful history of Mesilla including the political wars and the Gadsen purchase, a visit here has extra meaning. If one is looking for a ton of shopping and a Disneyland adventure....this is not the place. But for a quaint dip into the past.....Mesilla rocks!

Very unique tourist area with history. Affordable shops from locals with lots of souvenir choices. Several restaurants to eat at. Parking can be a little crowded. Public restrooms are available since most shops don't have them. Make sure to check out a little pottery store called "The Potteries" just a block away from the main square of Old Mesilla.
