At 5,000 feet above sea level and nestled between the towering Sandia Mountains and the Rio Grande Valley, Albuquerque is rich with culture, heritage and breathtaking landscapes, and it is equipped with vibrant energy that’s indispensable to a fast-growing city. Nicknamed the “Duke City” because of its namesake, Viceroy Francisco Fernandez de la Cueva, the Duke of Alburquerque, the city represents a synergy of traditional and modern cultures.
