Sedona: Tlaquepaque

After spending Thanksgiving with family in Prescott, Arizona, we drove up to Sedona to visit friends. One of our favorite places there is Tlaquepaque (pronounced Tla-keh-pah-keh), a picturesque arts and crafts "village" whose design is reminiscent of Mexico. Above: the chapel interior; right, the chapel tower.

While there are over 40 shops and galleries, we generally don't go to Tlaquepaque to shop--just to wander around, take photos, and soak up the atmosphere. There are cobblestone walkways, arches, fountains, loads of outdoor sculpture, and flowers everywhere. For us, it's a great place to stretch our legs after the drive and surround ourselves with visual beauty.

They call it "the art and soul of Sedona." For more information, click here. Hope you enjoy the rest of the photos in this post. Happy Holidays to all!
