On the West side of the building is the iconic El Camino Real, The Royal Road, the 300 year old route used by Spanish explorers on their way from Mexico to Santa Fe. It was also part of Route 66 , the Main Street of America. Established in 1926 Route 66 was one of the original highways within the U.S. Highway System.
