Since 1971, senior living to the fullest.

For more than 50 years, El Castillo has provided active seniors with a beautiful, secure setting for independent living, and well beyond.As a not-for-profit Life Plan Community—a continuing care retirement community (CCRC)—we provide a full continuum of onsite care, including independent living, assisted living, nursing services, memory care and emergency assistance. Thoughtful amenities, caring staff and lush grounds round out our offerings and make El Castillo a Life Plan Community of choice.


The staff of El Castillo & La Secoya strive to do their very best for our residents: from food service, housekeeping, maintenance, medical services to administrative support, we give it our all! Our staff is hard working, focused and dedicated and it shows at our beautiful two campus’ in downtown Santa Fe.
