The Barrio de Analco and San Miguel Church are both located on the south side of the Santa Fe River. Analco, from the Nahuatl language of central Mexico, means "on the other side of the water." Mexican indians who came to New Mexico with the Spanish settlers established their own neighborhood or barrio and called it Analco. The church of San Miguel was constructed before 1629 under the direction of Fray Alonso de Benevides to serve Mexican Indians. Analco and its church were destroyed in the 1680 Pueblo Revolt and subsequently rebuilt in 1710. When trade with the U.S. began after Mexican independence in 1821, wagons crossed through the Barrio de Analco, passing in front of the old church as they approached the plaza - the end of the Santa Fe Trail.
