Madrid (/ˈmædrɪd/, Spanish: [maˈðɾið]) is a census-designated place (CDP) in Santa Fe County, New Mexico, United States. It is part of the Santa Fe, New Mexico Metropolitan Statistical Area. The population was 149 at the 2000 census. Today Madrid has become an artists' community with galleries lining Route 14 (the Turquoise Trail). It still has remnants of its past with the Mineshaft Tavern and the Coal Mine Museum. The ending of the 2007 film Wild Hogs was set and filmed in the town. Belinda Vasquez Garcia's 2012 novel The Witch Narratives Reincarnation is set in Madrid during the 1920s and 1930s when Madrid was a company-owned coal-mining town.
