Jim Kimmon's mellow video (3min 52sec) of Madrid - A Day Trip From Taos. On the Turquoise Trail, between Albuquerque and Santa Fe, NM is the old mining town of Madrid. Shops, restaurants and fun music at the Mineshaft Tavern are a must-visit.
Madrid is a census-designated place (CDP) in Santa Fe County, New Mexico, United States. It is part of the Santa Fe, New Mexico Metropolitan Statistical Area.
The population was 149 at the 2000 census. The ending of the 2007 film, Wild Hogs was set and filmed in the town. Today Madrid (pronounced MAD-rid) has become an artists community with galleries lining Route 14 (the Turquoise Trail).
It still has remnants of its past with the Mineshaft Tavern and the Coal Mine Museum.
Located just south of Santa Fe, New Mexico, in the mineral rich Ortiz Mountains, Madrid is in the oldest coal mining region in New Mexico. There is evidence of primitive mining in the Madrid area as early as the mid-1850's. Today Madrid with a quiet residential area and a busy main street, filled with merchants and artisans welcome visitors from across the world.
