About Plaza Blanca

Made famous by local artists Georgia O'Keeffe, these landscapes in a valley of the Rio Chama hills near the village of Abiquiu, when she made a series of paintings about the places she called "The White Place", or in Spanish "Plaza Blanca", this area of New Mexico is now on the grounds of the Dar Al Islam education center and mosque.

Although private land the center welcomes visitors who wish to hike and view the awe inspiring landscapes which may be known from O'Keeffe's painting or the many motion pictures which have used it as a backdrop.
