We enjoyed the town, the shops, museums and food. We often go to Madrid for a weekend treat, and stopping at Cerrillos instead was worth it. And we'll go back. We bought from some NM artists and enjoyed our brunch at the Blackbird Saloon!!!

Not really a ghost town but certainly a throw back to earlier times. Many old buildings to look at which invoke thoughts of by-gone times.

Beautiful spot, not really a ghost town! Plenty of people do live here. Wonderful place to take photos of historic buildings of all kinds. Don't miss the Broken Saddle stable. You can get maps from the visitors' center.

We hiked Kitchen Masa (very steep and climb at the end) but, worth it to hike up to that point if you don't want to make the climb and Chimney Rock (shorter of the two). Both beautiful and a great way to spend the day!

We drove the Turquoise Trail from Albuquerque to Santa Fe. It gives you an interesting variety of towns and scenery. While Madrid is a quirky town reclaimed from ruins by hippies, full of eclectic shops, Cerrillos is a step back in time. Very quaint in...More
