Owner description: A Sedona landmark since the 1970's, Tlaquepaque treats visitors and local residents to an exceptional collection of galleries, shops and dining establishments. Named after the picturesque Guadalajara, Tlaquepaque construction began in 1971 with the creation of the wall along the highway. Giant sycamores and stately cottonwoods dapple the light in the courtyards, encouraging the visitors to meander from one courtyard to the next. While meandering stop by and view our Chapel on property - and perhaps you might get a glimpse of a wedding and reception. Tlaquepaque hosts several community events throughout the year. Tlaquepaque is a place that visitors return to again and again - to look and wander, to sample and buy, to eat, drink and refresh body and soul. Visit us soon and discover the magic yourself!

I walked through the beautiful Tlequepague shopping area today. While most of the stores and galleries were way over my budget, I did enjoy the numerous statues that were abundantly scattered through the shopping center. Everything was so tastefully done and visually pleasurable. There are also several restaurants amongst the shops.

we've stopped in here on our yearly scottsdale visit for over 20 years, i believe. we've even come here and found it snowing, in april. the last visit a number of years ago was a bit sad as so many of the shops were closed and empty. great this time to see the place thriving again. a lovely adobe designed shopping enclosure. holds a restaurant, many art galleries and unique shops. situated by a creek. wonderful gardens and plantings. busy with all ages. a delightful stop.

We spent about an hour investigating this Mexican-style shopping center filled with many shops featuring a wide variety of unique hand-made art goods. Clean restrooms.

It's compact and easy to get around and we were able to park very close to the shops. They have a larger unpaved area nearby where lots of people were parking.

The majority of the items for sale appeared to be of high quality and the prices reflected that. There was only one item my wife wanted and it was gone when she went back to buy it so we left with nothing from there.

There is a highly-rated Mexican restaurant on site and small snack shop.

It was just fun to see but probably not a place we could groove on. Just not the type of things we usually look for.

Yes, this high end art and specialty Mexican-like village reminded me of Scottsdale and their high end galleries. The entire courtyard features neat little alleys and fountains in every courtyard.. Beautiful bronze statues are everywhere and a photographer's dream. The restaurants are unique and favor Mexican cuisine. We dined at the Secret Garden and found it delightful. Did we purchase a $4,800 one of a kind bronze? No. However, we really enjoyed just walking around the different shops and taking pictures of the statues, fountains, and special features of the buildings.
It was fun for both husband an wife. No pressure to purchase as the shop keepers were delighted just to have someone stroll into their shops. Pre-Easter week, so very busy. We returned at night and took pictures of an empty plaza. Very different and again a photographer's dream.

We recalled our travels in Mexico as we wandered through the gardens, courtyards and galleries of this quaint village modelled after a picturesque suburb in Guadalajara, Mexico. Graceful old-world arches, tranquil plazas, splashing fountains, unique specialty shops and fine restaurants create a charming ambience that tempts one to linger…and return.
