New Mexico's largest city was named to honor a Spanish Duke, the 10th Duke of Alburquerque. Colonial Governor Don Francisco Cuervo y Valdez selected the name, but over the centuries the first "r" has been dropped. Today, Albuquerque is recognized as one of the most culturally diverse cities in the country and offers numerous museums and cultural centers to explore. Home to some of the nation's finest high-tech research facilities including Sandia National Laboratory, Phillips Laboratory, and the University of New Mexico, the city is also leading the way in technology. Albuquerque stands with one foot in the past, one foot in the present, and both eyes on the future.
