THE TOWN

Albuquerque is the most populous city in the U.S. state of New Mexico. Its landscape is characterized by Sandia Mountains which run along the eastern side of Albuquerque and Rio Grande which flows through the city, from north to south. The touristic fame of the town has grown enormously in recent years thanks especially to the International Baloon Fiesta, and to cult TV series Breaking Bad which takes place right here.
