Most people whould not think to visit the capitol in Santa Fe, but it really is a treat. Called the "Roundhouse," it is one of the few statehouses without a dome. It is styled after a kiva - where native Americans would have a "town meeting" on the pueblo. The round structure is modified slightly to form the Indian Sun Symbol - the Zia which is the symbol on the state flag.
It was renovated in 1992 and the result is a very airy space with lovely wood accents. The capitol is like an art museum filled with 3-floors of wonderful southwest art and outside has sculptures.
