A Stop at Old Mesilla

The historic town of Mesilla lies just west of Las Cruces.  It has that small town charm, with rustic historic buildings.  There is a huge, grassy Plaza where vendors line up the perimeter to sell their goods, with the beautiful back drop of the San Albino Basilica.

I love this rustic brick building with the turquoise door and windows.

The San Albino Basilica.

The history of the town boasts everything from the Civil War to Billy the Kid.

We followed the locals to the La Posta for dinner.  

We  dined on some great Mexican food and of course, had to have a margarita... or two.
