This is a list of specific named locations in the Josefina series.
The Camino Real (Spanish: "the Royal Road") is the El Camino Real de Tierra Adentro, a 1,600 mile trade route between Mexico City and Santa Fe (from 1598 to 1882). It is the trail that Abuelito uses to take a caravan annually.
Dead Man's Canyon
A large canyon on the Camino Real. Abuelito's caravan is set upon by thieves here on his return caravan, and Tía Dolores's piano crashed into a gully and scared them off.
Where the Pueblo Indians live, including Mariana. A stream runs nearby.
The rancho, or ranch, is where the Montoya family and their servants live. The rancho has been in the Montoya family for over one hundred years. The main building has thick walls and small windows to keep the rooms cool.
The rancho's layout and design are based off a real living history rancho museum, El Rancho de las Golondrinas, located in New Mexico.
Back part of the main building; surrounded by workrooms (and the kitchen), storerooms, and the servants' quarters. In one corner is a patch where Mama grew and cultivated flowers.
The ranch is surrounded by many crop fields. The cornfield is near the stream.
The front courtyard is near the main gate. It contains the grand sala and the private rooms for Josefina's family.
The largest, finest room on the rancho's main building. It has candelabras for putting up light.
The private use garden, just outside the back courtyard. It has various fruits, vegetables, and herbs; the way they are laid out reminds Josefina of a blanket. The garden is surrounded by a stick fence to keep animals out.
A stream runs near the main building of the rancho and is where water is gathered.
A lookout tower in the south wall.
Tía Magdalena's Home
Tía Magdalena lives in the nearby village.
The nearest village is unnamed. It is where the church is located.
